travelodge chester

The project is located within the Gorse Stacks Masterplan, Chester and incorporates two ground floor retail units that will provide active street frontages with a 160 room hotel over. It will compliment other mixed-use neighbouring proposals also designed by stephenson STUDIO.

The site is an important ‘gateway’ to the northern entrance to the historic city, which demands a powerful design that is simultaneously sensitive to the historic neighbours. A limited material palette of black brick, render and glass is proposed as a modern interpretation of the ‘wattle and daub’ facades that typify many of Chester’s historic buildings.
