Monkbar Hotel, York
About this project
DWA Architects have designed and managed several projects at the Monkbar Hotel
The Monkbar Hotel in York is close to the historic city walls. In the late 1990’s DWA Architects undertook significant work at the hotel, providing a new entrance/reception, increasing the number of rooms and expanding the function facilities provision.
In 2014, as part of a major refurbishment, DWA Architects designed and oversaw completion of an extension to add a further 26 ensuite bedrooms, some with view towards York Minster, offering luxury facilities. These rooms sit over a flexible meeting/function area at ground floor, which has state of the art media presentation systems. External works and access were concurrently reconfigured.
The development serves to enhance the hotel offering and meet an identified shortfall of quality accommodation for visitors to the city.
