To design a tactile wayfinding and brand implementation scheme for Cardiff’s newest luxury hotel, The Parkgate. Located in two of Cardiff’s most iconic and beautiful listed buildings.
The Parkgate Hotel is in the heart of the Welsh capital, a stone’s throw from the Principality Stadium. The hotel is the result of an extensive renovation project, combining two of Cardiff’s most iconic buildings, the former Head Post Office and the Welsh Capital’s old County Court. Built at the turn of the turn of the 20th Century, both buildings were granted Grade II listed status in 1975 in recognition of their historical significance and its representation of the grand-Victorian and Edwardian civic architecture.
Our task was twofold; First, to create a beautiful brand implementation scheme that would celebrate the history and original features of the building while positioning The Parkgate alongside some of the most luxurious hotels in the UK. Second, to plan and design a wayfinding scheme to encourage seamless navigation between the many building zones.
