Clarks Inn Suites is a luxurious 52 key suites hotel located in one of the bustling areas of Raipur. With its nearly 50,000-sq.-ft. space, the hotel wanted to transform the whole property into an experience that is bold, inviting , and oozes sophistication, and thus partnered with Raipur-based Azure Interiors for the transformation.
“This hotel is surrounded by many luxury properties and all follow the same architectural concept. Since most of these hotels are made by designers who are not from Raipur, it was a great opportunity for us to make something in close proximity. We wanted to make it out-of-the-box in comparison to other hotels,” says Rashi Bothra, Co-Founder and Principal Designer, Azure Interiors.
Ruchi Gehani, Co-Founder and Principal Designer, Azure Interiors adds, “We focused strongly on form as the major element of expression in the interiors, choosing elegant materials to build up layers of patterns, ultimately expressing a unified message throughout. The elements chosen gave each space in the hotel its own characteristic appeal while also being part of the larger, truly inspired design scheme.”
