YOTEL, Heathrow & Gatwick

Client: YO Group

We were appointed by Yotel to assist in the design of a Japanese pod type modular hotel.  Our involvement began at original concept stage, which included numerous design option appraisals and their incorporation into an existing building shell.  We also assisted with the initial appraisal stages in Schipol Airport and formulated the design concept.

The UK hotels are inside the airport terminal buildings accessible from the public areas at London Heathrow’s Terminal 4 and London Gatwick’s South Terminal.  The design delivers everything you would expect from a luxury hotel in a small space.

Our brief included the design of air conditioning, ventilation and lighting for this unique hotel concept and feasibility of two potential sites in the UK comprising of approximately 50 beds each.

We completed our role by delivering designs for single, double and family room types in standard, premium and luxury class. 

Each pod type includes en-suite plus services for an unmanned reception including security and all back of house and communal hotel areas.
