Other Information

  • The building is not constructed on part of the old ancient Roman city so site archaeology was not considered paramount at first. Site excavation however recovered the route of a Roman road and archaeologists found a number of items including a Roman eagle sculpture in perfect condition dating from the first or second century A.D.
  • To help make the building facade as thermally efficient as possible, the exterior has only 35% actual glazing. It is 0.35 metres deep creating an effective double skin. Despite the lack of glazing, the external material of the building is Corian giving it a continuously shiny look all over.
  • Vertical sets of LED lights are installed to exterior allowing the building to be imaginatively lit at night. This is not only intended to look interesting, but also to help strengthen the brand identity of what is a relatively unknown hotel chain, Motel One.
