The Vivanta Hotel
The Vivanta hotel was to be designed based on the guidelines set by IHCL for a new age trendy and modern 5 star base category city hotel catering to the young and dynamic discerning traveller. The idea was to make the space modern and luxurious yet understated. Ultra violet was a clear colour defined in the design brief and we had to play around this colour as a primary colour. The budget was to be kept tight considering the ARR (average room rate) for this brand. The design team started from choosing white Satuarrio tiles to white Calacata to laser cut customised tile inlays as a base material to overlay the ultraviolet with yellow ochre, bottle green and mint colours. The design has a retro modern look with the bar being designed on a modern industrial style keeping in mind the client profile that the hotel was looking for. Black, white and grey were added to give relief between the sharp and strong colours of the space to create balance in the visual palette. The brand login compromising of dots and dashes was another geometric pattern the team got inspired from and converted this into patterns in the carpets, wallpapers, panelling on walls and even patterns in the soft furnishing. The introduction of Swirl and Mynt as their standard F & B outlets had to keep the brand norms in place but yet come out with their own identity for the hotel. The challenge being, both outlets were part of the same space yet had to have their distinct identities. This was successfully achieved through glass screens and subtle change in details of wall panels and furniture. This hotel design adds value to the BNK hospitality portfolio and shows our ability to adapt to any brand and star category hotel.
