Home and Building, Volume 37 Number 6 (1975)

1: Travelodge Hotel, Queenstown

1: Travelodge Hotel, Queenstown

Architects: Warren Mahoney, Christchurch.

Queenstown Travelodge Hotel ingeniously makes the best possible use of a steep site while keeping within the height restrictions imposed by the borough's town planning scheme. To reflect the steep contours of the site and mould the building to the landscape each floor is set back 5ft 4in from the face of the floor below. The offsets form terraces in front of all bedrooms, make bold shapes of the end elevations and produce a complex double-height space to the lounge overlooking the central garden site between the two wings.
