The architecture of the Namaste Hotel builds on an ancient Indian expression: the two wings of the hotel are clasped together like hands greeting the city of Mumbai. In this way the architectural design of the hotel provides the ultimate symbol of hospitality and welcome, as seen in the cultural context of India.
The wings are finished in decorative designs reflecting the henna patterns applied to the hands of honoured guests at Indian celebrations. Within the podium are the reception levels and a large ballroom space, along with associated services. Containing mostly retail, the facade of the podium is activated with water features and fountains that cascade down to street level. The geometry of the podium is designed to integrate fully with the design of the tower. Above the podium is a 380 room hotel and 9,000m2 of office accommodation.
