Piramal Aranya Mumbai
Aranya Pavillion in Mumbai, a world-class experience centre at Piramal Aranya, is the Signature Residential Development by Piramal Realty – the real estate arm of India’s leading diversified global conglomerate, Piramal Group. Located in the affluent and culturally diverse district of Byculla, the neighbourhood was once home to the prestigious Byculla Club and the city’s booming textile industry. The Aranya Pavillion is flanked by the lush 60 acres of botanical gardens on one side and the glittering Mumbai Harbour on the other. The experience on offer is that of unparalleled premium living for the aspirational elite, embodied in a residential tower that is soon to redefine the south Mumbai skyline. The verdant surroundings of Byculla have inspired and formed the Pavillion’s design and are expressed through materiality, patterning and palette.
Park Hyatt Hyderabad
HBA continues their rich tradition of integrating faraway cultures with the height of modern luxury with the design of the Park Hyatt Hyderabad, the first city Park Hyatt hotel in India. Now open and situated only minutes from the city’s banking and financial district, the Park Hyatt Hyderabad represents the top of the line luxury to an emerging location, where HBA has showcased local Indian cultures and materials in their innovative design while crafting a memorable hospitality environment.
Hyatt Centric Bangalore
A division of the world’s leading hospitality design firm, Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), has helped the Hyatt Centric brand make its first mark in India by designing the country’s first Hyatt Centric – Hyatt Centric MG Road Bangalore. Located in the heart of the bustling city centre of Bengaluru, the property features 143 well-appointed guestrooms that will serve as a platform for guests who want to explore and share all that is vibrant and dynamic about the garden city. The property was designed as more than a hotel – it’s a launchpad to seeing, tasting and feeling everything the city has to offer. Upon being appointed for the landmark design, Studio HBA’s team took to the streets of Bengaluru to find out what was at its heart and the lifelines leading to it. The property’s immediate vicinity to the historical layers found throughout the city allowed the designers to pull from a rich history. They quickly learned that the site was at the edge of Kempegowda’s kingdom, which is credited with founding Bengaluru in the early 16th century. As such, Mahatma Gandhi (MG) Road, where the property sits, has seen the lavish parades of the British cantonment, the lush green landscapes of the botanical city, and is now at the centre of this pulsating and rhythmic metropolis.
Cal 27 at Taj Bengal Kolkata
West Bengal’s famed Taj Bengal Kolkata reveals its highly-stylized new fine dining restaurant, Cal 27, and further elevates the luxury experience for guests and diners. Studio HBA was tapped to orchestrate a space that infuses the distinctive cultural elements of Kolkata throughout the restaurant, carefully weaving inspirations from the city in each space. The richness of the city is felt throughout the Cal 27 space – touching The Hub and The Heaven outlets within it to coalesce a storied design. Studio HBA focused on procuring local elements and assembled them in artistic ways to pay homage to the setting. A lively blue and yellow colour palette represents Kolkata’s signature taxi cabs while black and white prints display iconic Kolkata elements. The blue and yellow colours appear as velvet and leather covers for the furnishings. Wooden window shutters were inspired by the rolling shutters of Kolkata while table legs took a nod from the four-post beds found in so many of the homes. Old Kolkata Rajbaris served as inspiration for the checkered floors and courtyard concepts and the city’s iconic chai teacups were translated into lampshades.
Four Seasons Resort
The Four Seasons is a beguiling combination of graceful treehouse architecture and untouched natural beauty creating the ultimate Indian Ocean escape for those who value privacy and seclusion. The luxury resort is perched on a Jurassic granite landscape, overlooking a perfect crescent of porcelain white sand beach. The interiors take their influence from rustic local homes and the refined French Creole flavour of the surrounding islands. Hand-planed wooden floors and white-washed timber slat walls are complemented by a thoughtful mix of French antiques, modern classics and found objects that have been transformed into sculptural pieces for sophisticated living. Colours are subtly influenced by the teal blue ocean, indigenous cinnamon tree leaves and copious bamboo groves, providing a sense of place and enhancing the indoor-outdoor aesthetic pervasive throughout this spectacular property.
The Gallery HBA redesigned Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, re-affirming its reputation as one of the country’s leading luxury safari lodges and the ultimate Okavango Delta water-based safari. More than ever before, the lodge is a place of discovery and wonder, delightfully and uniquely capturing the spirit of the delta to become a place where guests can explore even as they relax and unwind after a day’s safari. Perched on a private island surrounded by some of the deepest stretches of the delta, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge encompasses 12 luxury tented guestrooms, each with a large terrace and plunge pool; a dining pavilion; a lounge pavilion across two levels; an arrivals boma; a retail area; the Fish Eagle Bar; a library and internet lounge; and a campfire area. All the structures are new, their form inspired by the astonishing and massive ant nests which rise from the local landscape, as well as the gentle motion of the nearby water channels.
HBA have imagined a tale of Love, Romance & Tragedy that unfolded in the heigh days of the Steel Brothers Company that had, as its headquarters, the building that is today the new Excelsior Hotel. By imagining the past and creating a tale, we not only bring the past back to life, but they frame it in the present.
One & Only Le Touessrok
Le Touessrok Hotel & Spa is the ultimate tropical resort destination. This ultra-hip hotel renovation has become the flagship in Kerzner International’s new One & Only branding blitz. This distinctly superior resort property’s contemporary face-lift resulted in dramatically opulent public spaces, sumptuous guestrooms with views of the lush local landscape, and sleek, elegant dining facilities.
Four Seasons Hotel
Challenging perceptions of hotel design, HBA sets a new benchmark for avant-garde with the Four Seasons Hotel. Remarkable for both its soaring height and contemporary design, the hotel rises 103 stories above the Pearl River. The project is architecturally dramatic for its triangular tower, diagonal lattice and soaring, 30-floor-high atrium. From the ground floor, guests take dedicated express elevators to the 70th-floor lobby, where a dramatic three-meter red steel sculpture by Australian artist Matthew Harding. In a subtle reference to the hotel brand, the screen is themed around the four seasons, from spring in the basement to fall in the upper reaches. The architect created amazing spaces for HBA to work with and this building stands out as a new design icon for both Guangzhou and for the Four Seasons brand.
An ultra-modern hub of urban activity, Sao Paulo is a crossroads of cutting edge modernity and artisanal heritage – a place of connection. The newly renovated Hilton Morumbi is an expression of these connections – between the past and the future, the urban and the natural, the indigenous and the foreign. Starting with a minimalist approach, the design incorporates tasteful splashes of colour that draw from local artistic flavour to create a distinct sense of place. Sculptural gestures, textured surfaces, and a hint of greenery are combined to achieve a sophisticated yet comfortable vibe, inviting guests to connect with the culture and with one another. Several different screening elements are utilized to help divide spaces while at the same time allowing visibility from one space to the next, creating a sense of curiosity that draws the guest to move through and experience each one. The project includes a full renovation of the lobby, restaurant, cafe, and over 500 guestrooms and suites.
