CLASH CENTRAL IN NEWCASTLE HOTEL PROJECT
Clash Architects has been commissioned to draw up proposals for this new hotel next to Newcastle's Central Station. The project will be the third hotel by Clash Architects for Sleeperz, a new architecture-focused hotel chain developing sites in partnership with Network Rail. The Newcastle hotel will occupy a prominent triangular site on Westgate Street, replacing the existing but derelict parcels shed. The hotel, which will enjoy views over the Tyne Bridge, will have a total of 104 bedrooms arranged over five floors, including 12 professional business units on the ground floor. Peter Clash, director of Clash Architects, said: 'This new development meets the expectations of the city and station environment and provides a key urban building at this pivotal site. Our scheme combines sensitivity to the context with a sense of renewal, ambition and confidence in the future of Newcastle.'
