VILASA MAHABALIPURAM RESORT
CLIENT: ADYAR GATE HOTELS LIMITED
LOCATION: CHENNAI, INDIA
Located on a beach about 40 mins drive
from the centre of Chennai, CV has designed
a luxury resort with an emphasis on cultural
relevance and environmental responsibility.
The architectural expression has sought
to encompass not only recognition of its
immediate and very rich cultural precinct but
also its direct development into one of the
most significant empires in global history.
With its courtyard layout, the proposal
seeks to become a destination in itself. The
architecture of the resort pursues a non-
stylistic, locally considerate, very simple
backdrop to the activities providing a "stage"
whereby the guests' involvement and `sense
of place' is enhanced while exposure to
amenities is subliminally emphasised.
Praana is designed as a Platinum LEEDs rated
property for well-known Luxury Collection and
respectful of Vaastu Shaastra principles.
