Hotel Shalimar

Client Brief

To create a warm and inviting ambience in the lobby of the newly renovated prominent hotel in the business district of Bangalore.

The Challenge

was to create a design that would give the space a rich feel & also give it the perception of space since the ceiling was low and the lobby was small .

The Theme

The name ‘Shalimar’ is synonymous with great beauty as the Emperor Shah Jahan created the Shalimar Gardens which are known for their royal beauty. Keeping this in mind the ‘lotus flower’ was chosen as the pivotal form and the design was developed around it. Mirrors have been used extensively to give the feel of added space & also to infuse the space with reflected light .Since it is onto the road, the mirrors reflect the buzz of people and vehicles moving adding a whole new dynamism to the space. The use of muted golden hues gave the lobby a royal look without appearing garish and thus added a certain elegance and charm to the place.

The aesthetic artwork helped in recreating grandeur and infusing the space with irresistible beauty.

  • We wanted an element, a piece of art that can light up and energize our space to create the right ambiance. Madhu came up with a concept where she would use our wedding date as a percentage to make a customised CMYK colour chart, creating an excellent piece of art.
    It is extremely nice and gives us lots of energy and colour — brightening up the entire space.

  • Today hospitals are like hotels, and we wanted the experience to be seamless. Given the multitude of hospitals available, the look and feel of a hospital has to go hand in hand with the services it offers. It was for this that we tied up with MadhuChandrika to create colourful artwork that evoke a feeling of warmth and vibrancy, welcoming people of all ages into the hospital and making it feel like it wasn’t a hospital.

  • We are in the business of jewellery and other collectibles, and are known to have an eye for the finer things in life. We have in our collection several works of art such as a Padamsee, a Vaikuntam, and several Gujrals and Yusuf Arakals.
    Our latest acquisition is a work of art from MadhuChandrika — a brilliant piece of work at the entrance of our office. Its an artwork that speaks for itself! The colours are shaded just right, and the maroon and gold blend perfectly to create an arresting piece.
    MadhuChandrika can truly make your wall speak. She is someone we would be happy to recommend and be associated with.
