AWESOME! Exterior and interior design are amazing. Everyone has a dream-house. That one is mine. Yes. The whole building.

Award Entry

Sanjay Puri’s Chrome shows that a few clever facade features can save on the bills 

Sanjay Puri architects have created a clever hotel with a punctuated skin with numerous 600 mm diameter circular windows arranged in a graphical pattern for the three lower levels that house the public areas.

The windows are deliberately created in an opaque glass to block out the immediate surroundings & allow the public spaces to have an ambience of their own, whilst allowing natural light. Concrete fins are arranged around the windows offer privacy from the adjacent office buildings whilst also acting as a heat barrier. Through these combined efforts the air conditioning cost is thus reduced by over 25 %.

The spaces are thus defined in complete contextual terms to the site, its surroundings & location and the climate of the city. The punctuated rectilinear volume of the hotel with LED lit circular glass windows renders it dynamic by night while it looks sculptural & creates a strong presence with a unique character.
