ITC Welcom Hotel
Our next hotel for the Welcom brand, developed by ITC Hotels is located in Guntur, just 40 miles West of the Bay of Bengal.
Our concept for the hotel was to immerse guests in the spirit of the region drawing on the tropical climate and beautiful botanical surroundings, complemented by the traditional elements intrinsic to all My Fortune Hotels.
The bedrooms aim to create a relaxed, luxurious but business like environment for guests, while introducing traditional elements such as decorative screen work to the bathroom doors and a statement bed with turned posts and carving.
The majority of the public spaces are double height, which create a series of dramatic volumes. These have been layered and divided through the use of screens, metalwork and bespoke light fittings to create a rich interior, reflecting the colours of the region ranging from the vibrant greens found in the chillies specific to the region to the distinctive colours of peacock feathers also native to the area.
James and Holly just got back from their trip to Guntur. Here is a panoramic view of the site for the new hotel.
We are off to India soon to present our design for the new ITC Hotel in the lush city of Guntur.
