Buschow Henley takes off with airfield hotel

  • Comment
London-based practice Buschow Henley has won the competition to design a new hotel, complete with its own control tower, at a private airfield in North Yorkshire.

The practice saw off a trio of local firms in the invited RIBA-organised contest, which will see the construction of a 14-bedroom luxury hotel near the village of Bagby in the Vale of York.

The other competing offices were Salt Architects from Beverley, York's DWA Architects, and Bareham Architects of Leeds.

As well as guest bedrooms, the hotel will sport lecture rooms, meeting rooms and a swimming pool, organised around a U-shaped central courtyard, featuring a reflecting pool.

A rooftop restaurant with views of the private airstrip will sit on a rectangular concrete 'table' supported by rammed-earth walls.

The scheme, for an unknown private client, is expected to cost £3 million.
