Distinction Hotel Christchurch
Situated in the heart of Christchurch, conversion of this former hotel in Cathedral Square to the Distinction Hotel brand both actively and positively contributes to the ongoing rejuvenation of this key public space. With 179 rooms over eleven floors, spacious layouts and contemporary finishes were chosen to create warmth and comfort for guests as is renowned with Distinction Hotels. Readily accessible amenities are designed with travellers in mind and offer relaxing spaces to unwind whilst enjoying views over central Christchurch. Common ground level areas containing reception, bar and restaurant are arranged intuitively to encourage guests and visitors on arrival to experience local hospitality in a comfortable setting. Selected furnishings complement the generous volumes by creating areas of retreat and privacy whilst also connecting to the surrounding city. Project authored whilst at WSP Architecture.
