This project is for a competition to design an Indian heritage museum in Singapore.
The aim of the concept was to create a building that houses all aspects of the brief with a unique look quoting from Indian culture. One good example is the main facade which has stairs connecting the different levels. These stairs are ordered in such a way that they refer to the famously stepped wells of Rajasthan in India. A local Singaporean Indian artist was asked to do the mural painting.
The project is located in Nairobi and the brief was to design rooms and amenities for a boutique hotel. We proposed to create a brand with an identity that represents the forms & geometries of Africa. Preempting future expansions of the brand three themes have been defined, depending on size and allocation of the hotel a theme will be chosen; landscape, wildlife or minerals.
This first hotel of the brand is a city hotel, for which the ‘minerals’ theme is most suited.
