Status: Built

Size: 80,000 sq ft | 10 acres

The architectural intent behind the refurbishment of the hotel rests on the fusion of the traditional and the contemporary; to amalgamate the existing characteristics of the building with modern elements.  The design approach for the hotel construes the native Nepalese motifs and elements of tradition. The intent has also been to unify the many segregated fragments of the hotel, each of which had been designed over the last few decades in a piece-meal manner. Native textures and materiality: On entering the hotel, the reception and porte-cochère have been envisaged as illustrative of the physical landscape of Kathmandu, amidst the valley of the Himalayan mountain range. Inverted pots hung from the ceiling highlight the influence of pottery in Nepal and at the same time offer an artistic infusion of contemporary design in a traditional manner.
