INTRODUCTION The park hotel Hyderabad reflects the culture mystique and hospitality of India , blend with modern facilities and services to create the finest business hotel of the country. Architect : Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM), the New

York-based architectural firm. Location : it is located on the Raj Bhavan Road in Hyderabad,

Andhra Pradesh near hussain sagar lake. It is 35 km from the airport and 5 km from the railway

station. This 531,550-square-foot, 270-room hotel infuses a modern,

sustainable design with the local craft traditions, and is influenced by the regions reputation as a center for the design and production of gemstones and textiles.

THE FAADET H E P A R K The facade provides a range of transparency according to the needs of the spaces inside. Perforated and embossed metal screens over a high-performance glazing system give privacy to the hotel rooms while allowing diffused daylight to enter the interior spaces, and provides acoustic insulation from trains passing nearby. The opaque areas of the cladding shield the hotels service areas from public view. The shape of the facades openings, as well as the three-dimensional patterns on the screens themselves, were inspired by the forms of the metalwork of the crown jewels of the Nizam, the citys historic ruling dynasty

FEATURES OF THE HOTEL

At the Park Hotel, SO M designed the recreational spaces, such as the infinity edge pool, atop a three-level podium at the open corner of the trapezoidal volume.

Solar gain is reduced by an aluminum screen filigree, and insulated

glass units are recessed behind the metal skin. The cantilevered portion of the carved-out volume also acts as a canopy for the courtyard and pool that sit atop a three-story podium.

The podium- credits level courtyard accommodates outdoor dining,

which is enlivened by the changing colors of LED s behind the aluminum screens.

The main lobby, located on the third level, features leather panel walls,

floors of Australian white marble with silver metallic tile (in the center), and a custom glass chandelier.

In the Ruby Lounge, a semicircular banquette in macassar ebony

wood with red velvet upholstery is enclosed by antiqued mirror glass with motifs similar to those seen in 18th-century Indian paintings. The ceiling features Kalamkari fabric panels by Preksha Baid.

Windows that peek through the bands of the perforated aluminum

screens in certain guest rooms permit views of Hussain Sagar Lake to the east. The interior design firm for the rooms, Chhada Siembieda Australia (CSA), based in Sydney, opted for jewel-tone accents on a light-colored backdrop.

The project is distinctive for its profound implementation of sustainable design strategies,

with special attention paid to the buildings relationship to its site, daylighting and views. Solar studies influenced the site orientation and building massing, with program spaces concentrated in the north and south facades, and service circulation on the west to reduce heat gain. The hotel rooms are raised to allow more expansive views, situated on top of a podium comprised of retail spaces, art galleries, and banquet halls open to guests and visitors. on-site water treatment facility and sewage treatment plant process both gray water for reuse and waste water for release back into the citys sewer system. The project achieved the first LEED Gold certification for a hotel in India, and has been awarded Best New Hospitality Project of 2010 from Cityscape India. It also served as a case study for using a collaborative process to achieve an environmentally efficient design in Design Principles and Practices.

LITERATURE STUDY

Entrance

P U B L I C S P A C E S

The impression created by the main entrance is important and defines the type of hotel. It must always be obvious and lead directly to reception. Something more than a canopy is desirable to provide protection from wind and rain. A porte-cochere should be wide enough to allow two cars to pass and possibly high enough for coaches. so the ideal width of the entrance is 5m to 6m. Provide doors wide enough for a porter with bags, 900 mm clear. All public entrances must be accessible to ambulant disabled people, and at least one to those in wheelchairs. a security pit should have been installed with all the proper security instruments. Having the dimension 3m X 3m. all entrance points should have car scanners installed at every entry / exit points. entry & exit points to the site should be same with one emergency entry (width 4m) and one service entry (width 8m) emergency entry should be mechanical as well as manual override in case of emergency. service entries are very critical as far as security is concerned so 2 or more checking pits ( 2m X 2m) with highly trained staff is required.

Parking according to NBC-2005 the hotel comes in commercial category with special sub group residential commercial. parking norms for this has been decided by the occupancy as an average of commercial residential Parking norms-1 Car per 4 guest rooms (NBC part 3 appendix B) this can be further classified in to-open parking, tourist bus parking ( at least 2),basement parking,multi level parking, service parking (2 trucks) in underground or multi level parking there should be provision of a lift to be accessible for physically challenged persons

Reception The reception desk should be visible to the guest immediately on entry, and it should be on the route to the lifts and stairs. In any reception, the following facilities are required: Space for receptionist Key racks, often associated with letter racks behind counter Cashier and accounting equipment, computer, etc. Foreign currency service may affect storage requirements House telephone, for visitors to speak to guests in their rooms Call boxes: if there are phones in rooms only a few will be needed.

RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE RECEPTION DESK AND OTHER FACILITIES

P U B L I C S P A C E S

Dining rooms The dining room is usually open to non-residents, so there should be convenient access from outside the hotel in addition to access for resident guests. Most larger hotels will have dining rooms on several levels, such as a breakfast room on the first floor. The main dining room must be directly adjacent to the main kitchen.

Most larger hotels will have dining rooms on several levels, such as a breakfast room on the first floor. The main dining room must be directly adjacent to the main kitchen.

kitchens kitchen size is determined by the number of workstations, the space required by the equipment, the range of meals & the extent of food preparation.

Bedrooms are the core of the hotel industry. For flexibility most rooms have a double bed or twin beds. Bedrooms normally have en-suite bathrooms. It may be assumed in preliminary calculations that the capital cost of a room will approximate to 1000 times its nightly rate. Areas Corridor widths and bedroom sizes are greater in more expensive hotels. In the preliminary design stage allow the following overall bedroom areas: 2-star: 2022 m2 3-star: 2527 m2 4-star: 3034 m2 5-star/exclusive 36 m2 min. Bedroom corridors Corridors in bedroom areas should be minimized. Widths vary from 1.3 m wide for 2-star to 1.8 to 2.0 m wide for 5-star. Costs usually dictate bedrooms both sides of corridors Orientation Take account of sunlight. Bedroom blocks with the long axis nearer northsouth than eastwest are preferable. Position bedrooms to minimize noise from traffic, machinery, kitchens, and the hotels public rooms. Form The bedroom areas are formed from relatively small units divided by separating walls, with many service ducts. On plan the block often forms an elongated rectangle, which can be straight or curved, or bent around a corner, or surrounding a rectangular or round courtyard.

Bedroom planningRooms must be designed and furnished to facilitate access, cleaning, making up and servicing. The shape and to some extent the size will be governed by the placing of the bathroom. Most new hotels have individual bathrooms for each bedroom. There are three common arrangements Bathroom on external wall This gives natural ventilation to the bathroom. The greatest disadvantage is that the service duct can only be inspected by passing through the bedroom. Also with bedrooms on both sides of the corridor two separate drainage systems are necessary. The amount of external walling is increased, the bedroom window is often recessed and light to the bedroom may be lost. Bathrooms between bedrooms The main disadvantage is the elongation of the corridor and the increased external wall. If the bathrooms are adjacent one of them is intern
