The Vivanta Hotel designed by WOW Architects Pte Ltd is located in Bangalore, India. The building was commissioned by the Taj Group of Hotels, under a new label that would cater to the current trends and changing tastes of a younger and more design-savvy generation of hotel users and business travellers. Taj’s ambition gave WOW much aesthetic and theoretical free reign, to which they responded with a development strategy which has resulted in a unique combination of contemporary space building and high-end technology, set within landscaped grounds.
Because of the low mass dictated by the urban design guidelines, and because of the mild climate of Bangalore, a strong landscape strategy was chosen as the concept driver. Then, in order to tap into the mindset and profile of the expected client base, the hotel was to be deliberately zestful in spirit and dynamic in design.
