    EPR Architects have just gained Planning Permission for Bristol Airport’s first hotel. The 251 bed, sustainable hotel will be located close to the Terminal Building arranged in two wings that front onto a new landscaped area in front of the building. The hotel has been designed to have a strong horizontal emphasis with colour used to articulate the form, and the striking metal cladding system used to disguise the regimented window arrangement common in budget hotels.The social heart of the hotel is the ground floor reception area which can be entered either from the car park or from the pedestrian path from the terminal. The restaurant and bar seating will spill out into this space to create a busy, welcoming and lively space. 3 meeting rooms, staff accommodation and administration offices are located close to the reception area in the north wing.

    The building is designed to be sustainable, minimising the consumption of energy, materials and water through the selection of construction materials and technologies that minimise site wastage and that are locally sourced wherever possible.
