Metropolitan Workshop has won a design competition for a new boutique hotel and residential development near Castletown on the Isle of Man
The London-based studio defeated Gareth Hoskins Architects, Hodder + Partners and Adam Architecture to land the project which is backed by property developer Dandara.
The £20 million new build scheme will replace the derelict Castletown Golf Links Hotel which closed seven years ago.
The prominent site on the Langess Peninsula – which means ‘long promontory’ in Old Norse – is close to Iron Age remains and a ruined fifteenth century chapel and thirteenth century fort.
A former lighthouse converted into a holiday home by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson is also nearby.
Images of the competition-winning scheme have yet to be revealed. A planning application is expected to be submitted later this year.
