Grange City Hotel, London
Client: Grange Hotels
Architect: Buchanan Associates, London
Type of works: 4,700m² of ALUCOBOND® was used to clad the upper levels of the building.
In May 2000, Grange Hotels received planning permission to update its Grange City Hotel in London.
The existing 12-storey building was stripped back to its basic structure, and extended both at high level for bedrooms, and podium level for a new restaurant and conference centre.
Architect, Buchanan Associates decided to use 4,700m² of ALUCOBOND® to clad the upper levels of the building.
Architect, Dean Buchanan said: We had used ALUCOBOND® on two previous developments for Grange Hotels, and being very satisfied with the results, we decided to use the same tried and tested material again. We knew we would get a very flat and crisp appearance, and that was particularly important as we were combining the ALUCOBOND® with high quality Portland stone and polished granite.
