The Aviator in Farnborough…wow

During a visit the Security and Policing event this year (for we are Security Consultants), we stopped in for dinner and drinks at The Aviator Hotel in Farnborough and what an architectural and design treat that building is.

The architect was Hamiltons and the interior styling was by Gillespie UK and the main contractor was ISG  Interior Exterior plc.

In fitting with the historic feel of the area and its airfield and shaped like a huge propeller, it is a sleek and frankly breathtaking building. The exterior changes appearance depending on the time of day and light due to it’s cladding. Whether approaching from the main road or looking up from the airfield this is an arresting sight.

Inside is equally impressive, with a stunning white stairway leading the eye up to the continued circular landings.
