BFLS win Innovation Award for Aviator Hotel at this year's Saint-Gobain Gyproc Awards

Farnborough’s Aviator Hotel has scooped the Innovation award at the International Saint-Gobain Gyproc Awards, a biannual ceremony which showcases the world’s most ambitious and successful building designs using Saint-Gobain gypsum-based lightweight construction materials. Projects came from a total of 11 different countries, yet the Aviator Hotel managed to steal the show with its innovative use of GRG (Glass Reinforced Gypsum).

The elegant 169-bedroom hotel is formed using bands of bright aluminium, drawing visitors towards the main entrance and into a dramatic internal atrium, where these gracefully winding elements are echoed in the atrium’s spectacular spiral staircase. Designed by architecture firm BFLS and developed with Dakota Hotels, the Aviator Hotel is so called because it occupies the site of the former RAF Officers Mess at Farnborough Airfield.
