Southwark Travelodge

Southwark Travelodge

Architect: Dexter Moren Associates
Type of works: supply and installation of QuadroClad ventilated rainscreen facade system.

Hunter Douglas façades have been used to fulfil the five-star brief of the new Southwark Travelodge in the heart of London’s Bankside quarter.

The key objective for the 202-bedroom, eight-storey hotel in Union Street was to ensure that it fully complemented the award-winning Palestra building next door, the stunning home of the London Development Agency.

Travelodge architects Dexter Moren Associates set out to achieve a design that would not compete with the Palestra but which would pick up on its scale and nuances to create a landmark building in its own right.

As a result, Hunter Douglas’s high quality QuadroClad ventilated rainscreen facade system was specified in combination with fully integrated recess windows and glazing elements, also supplied by the facade and sun control manufacturer.

One striking and unusual aspect of the facade was the installation of 6m high panels and windows, each spanning two floors of the hotel to create the impression of scale.

The facade design was further enhanced with a jutting architectural feature at the top corner of the building.
