Unrealised Projects: Luxury Hotel

Another proposal for the Royal High School Site, this scheme by the late Gareth Hoskins takes a different approach to the task of renovating and extending the existing building than that of Richard Murphy.

The scheme envisages to wings extending East and West out from the central building in a similar fashion to Murphy. This makes the most of the linearity of the site and the room to develop.

However, this is where the similarities end. The two wings proposed by Gareth Hoskins Architects are prominent in their massing, but attempt to blend in with the picturesque vista of the south flank of the hill with use of cladding and the stepped tier nature of their massing.

Again, this information was retrieved from the planning portal and redrawn for inclusion into ATLAS.
