A 200 room hotel is fragmented into smaller volumes planned in a manner that allows each room to look out towards snow covered mountains & foliage covered hills in a scenic location in Srinagar city in Kashmir, India. A height restriction of 50 feet necessitated a large foot point for this hotel which allows it to contextually engage with the surrounding low rise development. The clients brief included the addition of a large area of retail space which is planned around an open landscaped courtyard & accessed from one of the 2 adjacent roads on the corner plot. The hotel facilities are entered from the other road. Alluding to the organic nature of old city streets in India , the circulation spaces within the hotel are organically laid out , shifting in angle as one moves through them . These angles allow each set of rooms to frame different views of the scenic surroundings while fragmenting the building organically . Large balcony spaces front each room to allow guests to have individual sheltered outdoor spaces to enjoy the scenic surroundings. Located in a city with fluctuating temperatures of 24 degrees in the summer to 2 degrees in the winter , the balcony spaces provide an additional shield to the rooms within. Being built in local stone, this hotel is planned contextually with sustainability as an integral factor.
