Metropolitan Workshop scoops £20m Isle of Man hotel regeneration

  • Comment

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.
