HOTEL MARINE PLAZA
Location: Mumbai, India
Service: Architecture, Interiors, Landscape, Planning
The biggest challenge while designing Hotel Marine Plaza was that there was an existing residential structure had to be turned into a five star hotel without demolition. The central atrium, a chowk with staircases and drainage pipes going through, had no open space for a swimming pool, leaving the terrace as the only option. The need for natural light in the atrium surfaced the idea of a glass bottom pool.
