The Park Navi Mumbai
Navi Mumbai, India
The ambition behind this Park Hotel was to create an iconic hotel for New Mumbai. The building had been abandoned for twenty years, only partially complete. We installed windows and painted the building white, illuminated by amber and blue LED lights.
The interiors mix traditional Indian patterns and textures with clean lines and modern shapes, a melding of East and West. The facilities include reception, bar, coffee shop and poolside area on the ground floor as well as the 'Bamboo' restaurant seating up to sixty people. On the upper floors there is a large banqueting hall adjacent to three interconnecting business suites. The bedrooms are arranged around an enclosed atrium, bringing natural light into the circulation areas.
The poolside terrace is characterised by a huge abstract glass mosaic pattern in blues, greys and oranges creating a graphic backdrop for the dramatic black elliptical pool. To the rear of the building is our 'white' garden. Inside, a series of abstract shapes and enclosures has been interted to the free flowing plan. The orange plastered bar breaks out to address the terrace, while the reception zone houses the snug and is clad in hand finished plaster Jali.
The bedrooms are generously proportioned with high ceilings and decorated in a classic neutral palate lifted by flashes of bright colour. The bathrooms, clad in pristine white tiles, all have huge showers and a teak vanity counter the length of the room. Project Orange designed all the furniture and the fabric for this project.
The hotel was listed in the top 10 Wallpaper Business Hotels 2008. To visit the hotels website click here: http://www.theparkhotels.com/navi-mumbai/navi-mumbai.html
