Austrian hospitality Group Vienna House will be opening its first hotel in the UK on St Vincent Street in Glasgow.

Glasgow City Council approved an application from Artisan Real Estate for a 250-bed hotel, with bar, restaurant and gym. The bar and restaurant are planned for the corner of St Vincent Street and Pitt Street and the gym will be on the corner of Pitt Street and West George Street Lane.


The new hotel will replace two adjoining office blocks which were built in the mid-1980s.




A planning statement says:

"Vienna House has 30 years experience and has delivered more that 50 hotels in 10 countries, employing in excess of 3000 staff. This will be Vienna House’s first hotel in the UK and represents a very positive new addition to Glasgow city centre’s tourist economy."




A design statement adds:

"To reference the traditional use of ceramics in Glasgow and some of the tones that characterise this tradition, we propose using a varied palette of green/teal/turquoise terracotta cladding. This will give this new building a bold and distinctive character but one rooted in the context of Glasgow."


Artisan Real Estate believes the design will give the building a bold, confident, elegant and defining character within this evolving and architecturally diverse part of the city.
