Horses Corner Submits For Planning

Guy Hollaway Architects has submitted a planning application for a 120 bed hotel on the corner of Ethelbert Crescent in Margate, a stone’s throw from the vibrant rejuvenated old town.

The buildings cranked form is a direct response to the site’s prominent corner location and the desire to make the most of the outward sea views across Walpole Bay.

Full height fixed glazing allows the majority of rooms to benefit from maximised sea views, and many of the rooms have been designed to have the capacity to interlink to accommodate families.

The hotels unique multicolour metal façade reflects the famous Margate deck chair and plays on the regeneration of tourism and culture that is being seen throughout this eclectic seaside town.

Margate has seen a rise of artists taking residency in the town, which is rumoured to also include Tracy Emin's new studio, this is as a result of the success of the Turner Contemporary Gallery.

Visitor numbers are also increasing as a result of the success of the Turner Gallery, and more recently Dreamland, therefore creating a growing demand for quality hotel bedrooms.
