really a wonderful concept discovered by mr.puri

Sanjay Puri Architects design the Verve Hotel in Kolkata, India 

A rectilinear volume, punctuated randomly encloses the public spaces of this hotel with rectilinear projections on either sides, that house the rooms in 4 levels... one of them projecting towards the front like a wedge. The hotel is situated along a busy arterial road in Kolkata, fronts a 24' high fly over and is flanked by commercial buildings on either side. The punctuated skin allows privacy to the public space including a restaurant, bar, lobby, gymnasium and conference rooms, while allowing natural light in the daytime. In the night the building would glow like a lantern with L.E.D ' s of varying colors installed in each of the circular punctures The hotel is entered through a 24'0" high entrance lobby, allowing visibility of the lounge and restaurant at the lower level, along with the bar & restaurant at the upper level. The rooftop is also enveloped by the punctuated skin houses a swimming pool, a lounge bar and a gymnasium. The juxtaposition of rectilinear composed white blocks housing the rooms against the randomly punctuated envelop of gray exposed concrete creates a strong presence on a road cluttered with a glass-aluminum commercial buildings, creating a unique identity. Designer/Architect – Sanjay Puri & Nimish Shah. Area of project – 58,000 Sq. Ft.
