Mackenzie Wheeler creates an extra wing and contemporary spa building at Harrogate's historic Rudding Park 

Mackenzie Wheeler has designed a new wing of 34 guestrooms and suites that will adjoin the existing Grade 1 listed country house hotel via a glazed atrium. The three storey wing is designed to compliment the existing buildings on the site. In contrast, the spa building is contemporary in design, bringing an exciting new architectural element to the 107 hectare hotel grounds.

The spa features a sedum roof and extensive terracing, non-reflective structural glazing and Cadeby Stone cladding, with timber louvers, columns and cladding features. “The design achieves a balanced composition of respectful guest wing and transparent spa, with a preference for new garden concepts over building forms, enabling us to juxtapose historic and contemporary aspirations without conflict,” says Duncan Mackenzie. “The new buildings, by virtue of location, landform and landscaping are not particularly visible in the first instance. The new entry sequence adds a sense of discovery when guests come upon the contemporary spa building in this otherwise historic setting.”
