Sleeperz Manchester Colour Clash

Budget chain, Sleeperz Hotels, has proposed this new building to stand near Piccadilly Station in central Manchester as part of their strategy of expansion which involves constructing hotels near major railway stations.

Located on a site bounded by Fairfield Street, Cotswold Street and Wyre Street, the ten storey building will contain 94 bedrooms, a breakfast room and several meeting rooms.

Greeting visitors will be a double height glazed ground and first floor with the ground covered in silicon glazed curtain walling. This material continues onto the first floor where it is mixed with a range of other textures to provide a combination of white, clear and translucent glass. On the corners of the ground and first floors is red adding a dash of colour to the approaching ground views of guests.

The design has been made distinctive by strong corner profiles that feature aluminium creating a look so sharp you could almost cut yourself. A touch of colour is added to the four center floors with coloured shutters that will appear from behind the glass. The sixth and seventh floors are set back slightly with double height strips of cladding and vertical bands of windows adding the impression of soar to it.

The top floor will be clad in clear translucent materials with the branding of the hotel standing behind it and above it will be a plant level set back to reduce the buildings overall mass from the street.

At night the colourful image is taken to its conclusion with the employment of a lighting scheme that will turn the building literally into a rainbow and no doubt establish it as a local landmark.

This is the second colourful design that Clash Architects has come up with Sleeperz Hotels in recent months following their plans for Lower Marsh outside Waterloo Station in London.

With such distinctive buildings on the horizon, this should work as an example of how external architecture can help create a strong brand that although budget in price is an exciting place to stay.
