High Fisher Gate is a contemporary hotel which responds sensitively to its context in a conservation area in the historic heart of Doncaster
Client Basilton Properties
This seven storey mixed-use building in Doncaster, South Yorkshire provides a 140-bedroom business hotel and Top Table restaurant on a prominent corner site in the city centre.
The careful selection of high quality timeless materials helps the building add to the townscape, and its respectful scale and massing makes it a good neighbour to the Grade II listed St George’s Church. Where the building faces onto Church Way it rises to only six storeys so that it remains lower than the eaves height of the church.
Materials such as pre-patinated copper and terracotta help to marry the contemporary building with its surroundings, will age gracefully and require minimal maintenance.
Offsite construction methods were used, including a precast concrete panel system and prefabricated bathroom units within the hotel, which facilitated a rapid construction programme.
