EPR's Gatwick hotel cleared for take-off

  • Comment

[First look + plans] EPR Architects has won planning permission to convert Longbridge House, an office block at Gatwick airport’s North Terminal, into a 192-bedroom economy hotel

The Hampton by Hilton hotel, which will be run by Shiva Hotels, will have a direct link into the terminal’s concourse level.

The architect’s view

The existing structure will be retained and this has prescribed the building form as rectangular in plan. The building will be increased by two storeys in height giving it a cuboid shape. The facades will be made up of composite metal cladding panels in a pale grey colour on all four sides.
Window reveals will be lined in metal, picked out in an accent colour to strongly contrast with the grey of the façade and prevailing colour of the airport buildings.
This proposed hotel provides a sustainable solution to the re-use of the building on this site and provides a positive contribution to the economic future of Gatwick Airport.
