Holiday Inn, Ruislip

When the developer’s previous attempts failed at gaining planning approval for the redevelopment of the hotel site, they approached MADE to assist him.

MADE proposed to refurbish the existing building and provide a new ‘C’ shaped building that houses the new hotel rooms, function halls, and a roof garden. The two buildings were linked with a rotunda reception and circulation tower to resolve level differences. Expansive glazing allows light to billow into the reception area with, rain screen cladding to block the heat of the midday sun while taking advantage of cool evening light. The façade draws on distinctive Holiday Inn branding with a green and grey finish, highlighting the site as a well-known welcoming place to stay.

Inside, clever features such as a free-standing fireplace help divide the large lounge area while adding memorable visual impact for guests. The vehicular circulation was carefully designed to allow for coach drop-offs for functions without disrupting hotel use. The development was maximised to provide around 120 bedrooms and 750 seater function capacity.
