Hotel Indigo York, Walmgate

Architect/ Designer: CSP Architects/ Matthews Mee
Client/Developer: Splendid Hospitality
Builder: R N Wooler
Presented by: Mr. Stuart Martel, Assistant Editor, The Press, York

The Hotel Indigo occupies one of several entirely new buildings on Walmgate, which together are a remarkably successful contemporary contribution to the otherwise traditional streetscape. The composition and detailing respond well to the character, rhythm and texture of the street as a whole – without aping the historic features or use of materials. The interior has been fitted out by the hotel owners in a richly eclectic mix of contemporary styles with many references to York and its traditions, giving the interiors of the common spaces and of each bedroom a very individual charm.
