Rooftop Restaurant and lounge
Because of the space constraints, we had no choice but to place a lap pool on the rooftop. The owners and we as principal architects were not ready to loose out on the space around lap pool. Utilization of the space, which would generate more revenue for the hotel was to be thought of. At the height of 50 meters and being the first tallest structure in vicinity we thought of taking advantage of this scenic perspective. Requirement of an additional Restaurant was a perfect fit for this place.

Major Clientele being corporates from the neighboring IT and Industrial Hub, the owners wanted to create a specialty Indian restaurant apart from the various F&B outlets designed within the hotel. The key factor was to design an outlet, which will attract the local patrons as well. Taking advantage of the architectural design and utilizing space to its optimum was the main criteria while going back to the drawing board.
Architecturally, we had designed the rooftop into split levels to accommodate a lap pool on terrace and a fitness center at the lower level. These Levels detailed out from the architectural design at the rooftop were to be utilized to create an intimate and charming dining experience to the guests. With twinkling stars above and a splendid view of the city from top, there was a concept emerged, less is more.
