HBA Designs 5-Star Hotel for Largest Conference Complex in New Delhi
6.1.12 | New York, NY | HBA / Hirsch Bedner Associates, the hospitality design firm behind the world’s most luxurious hotel properties, has been selected to design the Kempinski Ambience. Located in the up-and-coming area of Shahdara, east of New Delhi, the mixed-use property will be the largest convention center in Northern India and include 480 luxury hotel rooms, five restaurants, two swimming pools a luxury spa and fitness area.
HBA brings a fresh approach to design in the region with contemporary transitional fashions accented with subtle touches of re-interpreted Indian elements. Traditional patterns and customary Indian architectural details are spread throughout the property and the graphic elements of the main exterior façade are incorporated within the interior features of the hotel to create a unifying thread throughout the space.
“Because the Kempinski Ambience is part of a mixed use space, we wanted to create a very strong and unifying feeling throughout the property," says HBA Senior Designer. "By looking to India’s rich culture and history we were able to create a space that is both organic to its location and in line with the standards of the global luxury traveler.”
In order to create a space for the most sophisticated travelers that would also meet the needs of the Kempinski Ambience business clientele, HBA used a palette that is both elegant and calm, relying on warm beiges and browns which are accented by splashes of rich Indian color tones, such as indigo blue, saffron yellow, and vibrant reds. Cultural references will be underlined by an art collection comprised of works by contemporary Indian artists, which will in turn act as a highlight of the interior elements.
In addition to the lobbies on each side of the building, the property will house five restaurants, including a stylish yet low-key bar, an Indian Restaurant, a Pan-Asian Restaurant, as well as a casual Italian Trattoria. Both wings of the building will have their own swimming pool, fitness room and changing area, and each pool will connect to a luxury spa with six individual treatment rooms.
