Architectural Emporium have designed a hotel to be constructed opposite the railway station. It features a ground floor public house and restuarant, function space with a balcony at first floor and 27 bespoke bedrooms across three further floors. The hotel forms part of the regeneration plans for the town, which centre on the Shakespeare North development. The compact design is efficiently organised around a single core. Generous regular window openings are set within a robust textured masonry facade that features depth within a framework of openings. The main building volume is positioned to mark a primary gateway within Prescot. A second lighter masonry treatment is used for the ground floor volume which extends to the street edge, creating a first floor balcony for the function spaces above. The scheme has been granted planning permission and will commence on site soon.
