The 120-bed Hampton by Hilton Hotel is part of a mixed-use landmark development consisting of three building blocks which culminate in a 13-storey glazed tower facing the seafront at the most southerly part of the site.
The 5-storey hotel is located in the middle of the three building blocks (Block B below) directly above a 2-storey basement carpark.
White Ink Architects worked closely with McAleer & Rushe D&B Contractors from tender stage to develop the Stage 2+ design by Cube Architects into a scheme which was both financially viable and met the strict requirements of the hotelier as outlined in their Brand Standards.

“White Ink Architects were always happy to engage in matters of minor detail, and that underpinned the success of this development.”
“We approached White Ink Architects following the viewing of their project – The Hill House. We felt that their careful response to working with and integration to existing buildings would be key to the success of our project. We are delighted with the openness of the new glazed extension and its ability to cross the divide between the internal and external realms.”
“White Ink Architects stood by their concept throughout design development and were able to demonstrate value when aspects of the design were challenged… such conviction has paid off… Project deliverables have met programme and quality targets.”
“They combine design flair with technical knowledge and bring the much needed element of ‘common sense’ to the design and build process.”
“They work in a collaborative and responsive way showing consideration and understanding of our functional needs, and our financial and time constraints.”
“They are always pro-active and prompt in dealing with the day to day issues that occur on a project.”
“…the refurbishment of the Whitehall Building is a feather in the cap for Sandy Row… its refurbishment breathes new life into the area.”
“White Ink Architects provided a unique and strong visual solution to this project working closely with our teams to ensure functionality was not compromised.”
