The Waverly Hotel & Residences – Interior Design by Shilpa Architects
The Waverly Hotel & Residences is a 55 room boutique hotel located within the VR. Designed with the theme of Old Bangalore meets England, the aesthetic of the space is definitely reminiscent of a charming contemporary twist on shabby cottage chic. With Whitefield having a historic tie back to Churchill, there are small hints of Winston-inspired touches to the space. For example, the entire lobby space greets one with oversized flags of the union jack bringing you into a landscaped garden courtyard before you encounter the Churchill mish mash collage in the lifts. The whole space is tied together with the checked floor pattern which is again a very contempo classic use of this timeless look that brings back memories of the colonial period.
The living room lobby, is designed with a book shelf and fireplace – quite unlike a typical hotel lobby. This was done deliberately to let the guests feel at-home, allowing them to linger in a space that offers the warmth of an extension of their rooms if you may – which can be used to read the morning paper or catch up in the evening with friends. With access to the al fresco area as well, this space is the perfect mix of an indoor – outdoor environment with a great ambiance.
The rooms themselves are slightly larger than normal hotel suites and well suited for extended stay. Practical usage of materials has allowed a bright and light interior space for the guestroom suites. The highlight of the guestroom design is the change in color palette and material on every floor. Every aspect of these color stories were carefully curated, from being well matched and contrasted in shade and texture across a variety of furnishing and finishes within the room. The designers even went down to the detail of every corridor element, in order to provide unique experiences and memories to guests every time they check in to the Waverly.
Plush oversized headboards, contemporary painted furniture matched tastefully with woven bright colors in drapes and carpets complete the look in each of the guestrooms. The nodule apartment has the unique capability of turning into a single apartment with three bedrooms, a kitchenette and a fantastic great room as well. #Waverly #WaverlyHotel #pavisriprakash #pavitrasriprakash #shilpaarchitects #interior #interiordesign #interiordecor #VRbengaluru #VRMall
