Novotel Blackfriars Road, London
This contemporary 14-Storey, 4 star hotel building has a dynamic design celebrating its prominent site on Blackfriars Road (A201), on the South Bank of The Thames. The ground floor is fully glazed allowing clear view of the Reception and Communal Facilities, from Blackfriars Road, Meymott Street and Nicholson Street. Above ground floor, the mass of the building has been sculpted to create a dynamic form that responds to the surrounding buildings and urban context.
The street elevations are clad with a playful mixture of stone/concrete panels with recessed glazing helping to insulate the hotel suites from the busy street below, while the more sheltered courtyard has a glass curtain wall with coloured metal fins to allow views out whilst maintaining privacy for guests and diners.
The building provides 426 modern en-suite hotel rooms, Reception, Lounge/Bar, Restaurant, Swimming Pool, Fitness Centre and Sauna and Business Suite with Meeting Rooms.
