How often do you take the time to really look at the intricacies of the building you reside in or your favourite hotel courtyard? The world is no stranger to sublime architectural demonstrations both antique and modern. It’s unfathomable how centuries of masonry and related disciplines haven’t corroded the ingenuity and originality of the design definitions implemented in architecture. Over the years every design style branched from or into architecture has reflected relatively more than the creative tendencies of the practitioners. Many a time the political, social, economic and general consensus have dictated the relevance of certain design elements in a building without posting practical motivation on the back burner.
Architecture as a craft is associated with diligence in practice and assimilating existing information to curate designs that capture the integrity of the structure. For a bystander, the concept of architecture and design could be as monotonous as mixing building materials to construct an operational, fairly appealing building which meets its basic requirements. On a closer look, however, it presents an elaborate faculty that prerequisites meticulous knowledge about every component connected to the design and building industry. The testament of a designer’s command over their craft is reflected in the results they incessantly produce. For instance, Courtyard by Marriott, Shillong designed by Ar. Anil Badan of Studio B Architects illustrates the concise implementation of design elements along their parameters. The hotel recounts the deliberation in design decisions that makes it a treat for the patrons and architectural enthusiasts. Similarly, Radisson Blu at Karjat employs a nuanced confluence of Indian and Thai architectural elements on the roofs and various interior spaces.
One of the most evident declarations of a hospitality designer’s experience and dexterity is how right it feels. In addition to serving its intended purpose, the judgement to use appropriate building materials according to the terrains of the region, weather conditions, guest demographics, sustainability factors, evergreen design elements, safety regulations etc. all come into play to determine the distinction of the designs.
Studio B Architects are known for delivering marvellous quality in architecture and design and revere the rules of immaculate execution which projects the extensive experience of Ar. Anil Badan translating his design prowess into structures of monumental stature.
