The Park Hotel's hotel in Hyderabad has a central theme of a contemporary palace and several designers from across the world were commissioned to design its varied spaces using the erstwhile Nizam of Hyderabad's jewels as inspiration.We were commissioned to design the Hotel's Spa "Aura" .
A particularly uninspiring space devoid of natural light and ventilation in the basement of the hotel was converted by us into a sparkling environment - inspired by the sheen, transparency, and whiteness of the Golconda Diamond.
The entrance curved corridor walls of the Spa were built out of edge polished vertically stacked glass, leading to a circular womb like reception area with a fluid reception counter and relaxed customer seating sheathed in moulded white resin.
Surrounding this sparkling central core on the north are the spacious Male and Female wet areas with locker facilities. On the south is a Gym and a Salon. Further west from the reception is a spacious transitionary area leading gently to a sensuous curved relaxation area and a series of well appointed therapy rooms and suites.
In the circular relaxation area comfortable loungers are divided by sheer white curtains bathed in preprogrammed washes of LED light. Reflecting VIBGYOR colours, the sheer fabric assists in Chromotherapy.
Elements like the Embossed silver foil wall of the treatment rooms, the eclectic period chairs and the padded diamond shaped fabric as uphostery offset the otherwise futurstic interior, subtly echoing Hyderabad's royal past in a city moving rapidly into the future.
