We were part of the design of this 5 – star hotel in Kolkata right from the inception stage. The client was very particular about the aesthetics as he is a well known name for boutique properties in classical order. For this project in particular, the client asked to take inspiration from the east Indian culture of Kolkata. After studying various elements used in east Indian architecture and the Victorian style, we arrived at a design synthesis using elements with bright colors with a little touch of Indian – ness, in terms of fabrics and finishes.
The lobby has been designed with a huge glass domed ceiling using classical décor and fresco work. Design is more elaborate and coordinated in terms of finishes, colors and feel. Ceiling drop chandeliers make a style statement, connecting one to the bygone era of Victorian architecture. The bar is designed with a lot of wood and leather as the design elements in order to give a sense of sophistication.
