Dining areas are the most succulent spaces specifically in 5-star properties. The experiential factor that the guests look forward to when visiting or staying in a hotel is manifested through its Dining area. The space influences appetite, experience, conversations and initiate togetherness among the guests and serves as a focal facet for their vacay time.

Pilibhit

Haridwar is an ancient city and important Hindu pilgrimage site in India, where the river Ganges exits the Himalayan foothills. It is the city known for the strong influences of the deity Shiva, further enhanced by the presence of the river Ganga. 

 

Pilibhit House, a mesmerizing hospitality project in Haridwar by Designers Group, seeks to enthrall everyone who enters the town searching for liberation (Moksha). The cultural and religious significance of Haridwar played a considerable part in the contemporary design grammar of the Pilibhit House Hotel. This vintage property, situated on the banks of the river Ganga, was owned by the descendants of the royal family of Pilibhit.

The project was first initiated by the late Ar. Pradeep Sachdeva. After his untimely demise in 2020, this project was handed over to Designers Group. Later, Mr. Sachdeva’s team continued to work on the architecture of the property with Designers Group for the successful completion of the project.

As the project was assigned to the Designers Group in June 2020, a time when the lockdown was strictly implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team faced a crucial challenge. They had to design without making in-person site visits and by taking virtual tours of the assigned project while it was under construction.  

The hotel is a kaleidoscope of cultural influences and civilizations, an idea demonstrated by the holy city of Haridwar, where people from all over come to attain Moksha.

The dining area was devised to denote the Kama. The Neel Kanth colour of the Nandi evident in the exuberant wooden hand-painted ceiling with gold accents here reflected the presence of Lord Shiva. The classical influences in the area boast of the Indianness rooted in the hotel. A wall installation assimilated here is inspired by a holy-book reading-stand where the Granths (holy book) from usually every religion are kept, manifesting oneness and secularism of the country. Another light installation hovering over the buffet counter stimulates the sanctity of Shiv Kalash in the space.
