New Build Hotel – West Yorkshire
Steeton, Keighley, West Yorkshire
Bowman Riley designed the concepts for a proposed high quality hotel on vacant land off Station road, Steeton, Keighley.
The hotel comprises 80 bedrooms (25% of which are executive suites), a restaurant and conference/function facilities.
The building is set within a landmark location and conservation area. With this in mind, the building is designed to be a high quality, strong yet understated piece of architecture, through the interesting use of natural materials, to respond to the sensitive context of the conservation area.
The site is highly landscaped and the building has a green roof to soften its appearance from distant elevated views from the Yorkshire Dales national park.
The building is three storeys in height at the junction with Station road, rising to four storeys, as the natural level of the land drops away along Steeton Grove.
The development comprises a semi-basement car park which acts as a plinth constructed in natural random coursed stonework, above which, the building emerges in contrasting lightweight materials such as timber cladding and glass.
