Landscape, Retail, Hotel & Leisure

A great sense of arrival “theatre” has been created by altering the entrance road in a more meandering form, meaning that the main hotel entrance is only seen at the last minute. This gives the residents and customers a sense that the hotel is hidden away and secluded. The entrance area planting was also altered to help screen the hotel entrance form the road and cut down any traffic note, and a new rustic and screened-off satellite car park keeps most of the cars away from the front entrance. The overall effect of these modest alterations has a great effect on the setting of the hotel and its entrance forecourt, greatly enhancing the sense of ‘peace and tranquillity’,.
