Sun City - Five Star Deluxe Hotel at Devanahalli
The Hotel has been designed on the lines of famous Mysore Palace and is a fusion of the Dravidian and Rajasthani styles with Contemporary vocabulary and services, with Large Glass domes, e-glazing for energy saving, PV systems for power generation , solar water heating systems and cutting edge BMS systems for Energy Conservation . The Hotel Facility block had to cater to 1250 guest rooms which were designed as 2-3 bed room villas. These villas were to be used as Guest rooms on time share basis with the owners, a novel concept at the time of its design.
In terms of capacity and no. of rooms the hotel was to be the largest five star deluxe hotel in India. The 18m radius with 13 m height glass dome designed by us was and still remains probably the largest glass dome in India.
The villas were spread out in 120 acres in themed blocks based on the various Dynasties which ruled Karnataka over the years like the Hoysalas, the Vijayanagara Kingdom, and Tipu Sultan etc. The Architecture styles and the Landscapes were designed to showcase the civilization under the Dynasties.
There are four restaurants, 2 Banquet halls of 250 and 500 pax capacities with extension facility, Business center with committee rooms of various sizes. Two swimming pools, with a number of waterfalls, luxurious Nature landscape in and around the Hotel are the other unique features of the design.
Apart from the Hotel and the Guest rooms, there are three clubs, health facilities, a convention centre and shopping planned in the design.

Prototype for Bangalore Metro Station
Bangalore's Metro System stretches across the length and breadth of the City linking its important intersections.The materials required for such large scale construction and the damage that consumption of such carbon emitting resources could do, made us plan and design these Metro Stations with caution. We have submitted three alternatives for phase II with different structural systems and are awaiting approval.
