Biggin Hill Airport Hotel by EPR Architects

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] This new 4-star bespoke airport hotel designed by EPR Architects has been granted Planning Permission by Bromley Council

A fully glazed, triple-height reception area links the two elements of the 76-bed, 4-star hotel: the air-side public areas, and the quieter bedroom wing. The public areas comprise a restaurant/bar and function room that have been located as close to the runway as safeguarding restrictions permit.

The bedroom wing is three storeys in height with the upper floor with the large dormer windows being
dedicated as a ‘quiet floor’ for pilot use. Pilots often have to fly at night and sleep during the day, and have
been provided with their own lounge, kitchen facilities and small gym.

The simple form of the building is intended to make reference to the extruded forms of aircraft hangars. The proposed external cladding will be precast concrete panels faced with knapped flint with the roof and dormers clad in zinc. All the windows in the quiet zones will be triple glazed.
