The site is located 4 km away from the Bangalore International Airport and hence, a major challenge was to overcome the sound pollution during flights take-off and landing. Owing to their remote locations, airport hotels in India are usually not responsive to their vicinity and have a certain commonality between them, of monotonous facades with an array of windows, monochromatic appearance and no play of colour being typical characteristics. The façade is designed with vertical fins to cut the direct radiation from east and west side into the guest room areas. Iconic, visual character: The immediacy of the airport would be maximized to create a strong and unique visual character, thereby increasing the feasibility of the project as a hotel to attract guests. Bangalore has good weather for most of the year and this was a crucial factor in determining the morphology. The site was sunk below ground level for multiple level entries, thereby cutting out a void to create a landscaped podium. A large atrium is created in the centre to accommodate the public functions etc. A perimeter layout is adopted for the hotel and the pre-function areas are provided in the underbelly to create a microclimate within the spill-out spaces.
