Greenwich Novotel hotel to have exterior cladding replaced

The Novotel hotel in Greenwich by the railway station have plans to replace elements of their facade.

The hotel opened around 10-15 years ago with some light blue cladding on upper stories.

And now, after merely a few years they plan to replace it.

Two types of material were on the shortlist.

Firstly, there is white terracotta panels in horizontal bands:

The other option was zinc brass panels:


*drum roll*

The white terracotta was the winner after discussions with Greenwich’s Conservation Officer. The correct decision I feel.
