MGS Architecture - - Restaurant Design & Lighting -

In­tri­cate de­sign de­tails cap­ture the grandeur of tra­di­tional Mughal and Ra­jputana styles of ar­chi­tec­ture. Tra­di­tional tech­niques have been used to cre­ate pala­tial in­no­va­tions through­out the prop­erty. These in­clude white Agaria mar­ble floor­ing, Mughal arches of con­crete & Dholpur stone, Red Agra stone, gold leaf fres­coes, high domed ceil­ings, dec­o­ra­tive gilt mould­ings, sculpted mar­ble columns, and fine fret­work screens.

The ho­tel’s her­itage con­cept in­cor­po­rates beau­ti­fully ap­pointed rich tex­tures, opu­lent fur­nish­ings, and ex­quis­ite ob­jects d’art. The en­trance, an im­pos­ing

lobby, im­presses with its beau­ti­ful lo­tus foun­tain and over­head crys­tal chan­de­liers, and semi-pre­cious stone in­lay work on the floor­ing. Two court­yards, laid out along the east-west axis, are sur­rounded by rooms and bal­conies with low jaalis and cha­j­jas.

Orig­i­nal­ity of de­sign, tech­ni­cal pre­ci­sion, and the grand in­ter­ac­tion of in­te­ri­ors set this prop­erty apart. The de­sign of the In­dian restau­rant Fron­tier Mail, in­spired by the first AC din­ing chair car train in the Bri­tish era 1934, recre­ates the train com­part­ments. Ma­te­ri­als used are wood, metal fram­ing, GI sheets, brass frames, teak wood mould­ings and carv­ings, mir­rors, orig­i­nal rail track and wooden sleep­ers. The 24-hour diner Brown Sugar is a fu­sion of modern and con­tem­po­rary theme. The Polo Bar is in colo­nial style - glam­orous with clubby wood-pan­elling, brass ac­cents, and a pro­fu­sion of eques­trian-themed art. The seven ban­quet halls with pre-func­tion ar­eas that ex­ceed 18,000 sqft. area, are of re­gal el­e­gance and have air con­di­tioned car­peted Axmin­is­ter ma­chine tufted from Egypt.

Noor Ma­hal boasts of 122 rooms, in­clud­ing a Pres­i­den­tial Suite, Kh­wab­gah, 11 Suites, 78 Club Rooms and 31 Club Royal Rooms. The rooms are spa­cious, modern yet richly pala­tial, and fur­nished with wood and de­signer fabric up­hol­stery. Bay win­dow seat­ing of­fers a spec­tac­u­lar view of the in­ner court­yard and of the foun­tains and lush green lawns. Bath­rooms in Ital­ian mar­ble (im­ported stone block), are fit­ted with a glass en­closed shower, dual van­ity coun­ters, a large free-stand­ing bath­tub, walk-in wardrobe, and wooden floor­ing.

Kh­wab­gah, with its two bed­rooms, a liv­ing and din­ing area, has mag­nif­i­cent hand-printed false ceil­ings, wall jal­lis, white metal ar­ti­facts, thikri mirror work on walls, and tai­lor-made fur­nish­ings. The bar counter is made of an an­tique wooden bal­cony piece, wooden Kash­mir wal­nut ve­neer, and pearl coloured Asian paint deco fin­ish. Wooden mould­ings, a de­signer of­fice cham­ber with pri­vate ter­race in multi coloured Ra­jasthan lo­cal stone work, an an­tique wooden jhoola with brass in­lay, and a Dholpur stone wa­ter body, are the other de­sign fea­tures in this ho­tel.
