Projects / Dakota Deluxe, Glasgow
Evans Dakota Hotels Ltd
Dakota Deluxe is the first in a new chain of hotels from the Dakota brand which saw the conversion of a vacant seven storey, mid-century office building in Glasgow city centre into an 83 bedroom, luxury boutique hotel complete with bar, restaurant & external terrace.
Innovations & added value
The existing in-situ concrete structure was retained with the rear elevations upgraded and refurbished. In order to meet the Client’s aspirations, the two principle elevations to the street were completely transformed by the wholescale demolition of the existing façade which was replaced with a uniform grid of dark grey facing brick with large scale windows to every bedroom. The monochromatic palette of materials included polished granite, ribbed glass and textured Corian panelling and was designed to accentuate the brand’s identity.
