Along with Gallagher Properties, gdm Architects obtained detailed planning approval for the 150 bedroom hotel at Eclipse Park, just off junction 7 of the M20 in Maidstone. The 150 bedroom hotel (five floors of 30 bedrooms) also includes conferencing and meeting facilities, leisure facilities, a restaurant and bar, and a gym. The concept for the building appearance was to create visual interest by the sculptural form which was accentuated by the use of differing materials placed in harmonising juxtaposition. The bold use of timber cladding, dressing a floating corner feature, focusses the building within Eclipse Park and naturally leads building users towards the entrance.
