The site lies on a land with a diversity of trees available on the setbacks, and being on the highway, they are helpful in reducing the noise levels, hence a lot of trees have been retained on the site. Following the laying out of building footprint on site, the built form was devised by overlaying all the existing trees on the site plan. Although the footprint escaped major trees on site, the need for landscape was realized and brought into the building in order to provide a visual and physical breathing space along the linear inner corridors. A design that places the building blocks on long strips of land demarcating separate entries for the hotel and the banquet and placing the public functions in close proximity to the landscape. The external façade of the building has been designed with an intention to create a ‘sense of arrival’ for all the visiting guests through the use of an iconic fabric, yet cohesive, following a similar language of the rest of the design. The same has been achieved by indenting the walls of the façade skin inside and carving the entrance puncture out of it.
