MBA are advising York based practice DC-Architecture on the design of a new hotel near York’s historic Micklegate Bar. Following research into the history and development of the site and surroundings, and drawing inspiration from York’s surviving timber framed medieval buildings, a new design was developed with strongly rhythmical jettied elevations using untreated vertical larch fins with lime rendered panels between. The design makes the most of the slightly curved frontage of the site, provides a varied roof line, and breaks up what might otherwise have been a monolithic frontage into a series of smaller pavilions. The elevation reflects the roof form and layout of the hotel behind, which opens onto a small central garden courtyard accessed through an arch from Micklegate itself.Read less.
