Ritz Carlton Hotel
Contemporary architecture that draws from tradition
The planning and facade of the Ritz Carlton take inspiration from old Indian design practices and elements like the balconies and jharokhas of the Mughal palaces.
A blend of unique renditions of Indian traditional features with an elegant modern design, the Ritz Carlton at Link Road is an upcoming luxurious hotel in the heart of New Delhi. Located close to the Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi, the hotel property is developed on a 5-acre site amidst dense flora.
Conceptualized as an earthquake-resistant structure and split into an office block and a hotel block, the hotel is designed with avant-garde amenities in luxurious spaces. The 96,000 sq ft office block situated closer to the main road has a designated entry and state-of-the-art MEP systems for optimal efficiency and life safety.
At the heart of the design, is the central courtyard which is inspired by traditional Indian architecture. The courtyard is spread over three levels with disparate functions, surrounded by a gorgeous play of jaalis and a lush green landscape. With seating areas located amidst a water body, the spaces function as congregational areas for events and gatherings.
The planning and facade of the Ritz Carlton take inspiration from old Indian design practices and elements like the balconies and jharokhas of the Mughal palaces. Incorporating traditional architecture modernly, the wooden balconies and jaalis on the elegant grey backdrop create the desired aesthetic appeal. Made from authentic wood, the array of design elements bring classic charm to a contemporary setting. The facade also ensures minimal heat gain by using thermally broken double glazing and louvers.
Interestingly, the hotel is an all-suite one with various classifications of ultra-luxury suite types. With over 130 suites, a business centre, meeting rooms and banquet halls, the hotel block can house 3000 guests for any event with an elaborate parking space for 400 cars. To cater to the Indian families’ extravagant wedding festivities, a separate way for the frequent wedding baraats and guests leads to the banquet hall that spills over to a gorgeous open lawn.
