Our new space, “The Courtyard wing”, is an urban oasis, and it is an ode to the city of lakes – Bhopal. The new wing embodies the concept of a ‘resort in the middle of the city’, where serene courtyards, gardens and water bodies rhyme with our luxurious rooms and our impeccable and warm service to create an unforgettable experience. In the design of “The courtyard wing” you will find influences from various design cultures and perspectives, however, every element joins the choir in perfect unison and yet retains its individuality. Mangalore tiles have been installed on slanted roofs to create a South East Asian look and the color- occur that runs predominantly throughout the walls of the courtyard wing perfectly balances with the lush greens and reds of the tiles. As you walk along the corridors of our hotel, old photographs of Bhopal will accompany you along, creating a holistic experience like no other.
House on Fire by Pigmented Co.
Modeled by Pigments Co., the new restaurant “House On Fire” possesses the distinct look and feel of the Mughal culture. Designed and refurbished over a period of 25 days, the aesthetics complement the famous Lucknow kebabs being offered at the restaurant. Influences of the Mughal architecture stand out all the way - with a bold modern touch, the restaurant has been designed to make people feel like the contemporary Mughals. "We wanted to capture the regal feel and also offer intimacy. Mughal architecture has influenced us greatly ever since we started out and we have offered our own take of contemporized Mughal art and design. Dealing with local artists directly brings a certain authenticity to this," says Rohan Kumawat, Founder and Head Designer at Pigments Co. The entire 800 square feet has been partitioned into three dining spaces with distinctive arches and colors. Light streams in from the jaalis in these arches, highlighting the Moroccan lighting ornaments. Banquette seating runs the length of the dining area, with different seating configurations to suit small and large parties. Diwans adorn the last section, exuding a relaxed vibe fused with royalty. Intricate brasswork has been done on the large, vaulted gateways that are fashioned on old haveli doors. The marble inlay flooring reminds one of Indo-Islamic architecture - the patterns used being recurring in their theme. There is an overtone of softness even with distinct pastel shades on the walls due to their peeled-off texture. The fabrics absorb sound and at the same time radiate warmth. The colors are vibrant, while the refurbished, antique furniture retains the look and the feel of a bygone era. Delicate ornamentation and workmanship dot the walls with artwork done from artists from Amer; with beautiful craftsmanship, they've replicated the jharokas with a touch of minimalist design. "Our brand of design is a blend of the old and the new. Even with the jharokas, the design was finalized by combining traditional elements with modern architectural principles," says Devras Bhati, Designer at Pigments Co. The utmost care has been taken in the detailing of the restaurant. Bold colors like turquoise, mustard, and magenta reflect back from the mirrors decorating the walls. Contrasts have been stressed upon - the grays and the mustards combine effortlessly with the blues and reds as well as the contemporary tones blend into the culture of the royals.
