Bisma Eight was conceived as a 38 room building with a series of interconnected communal areas, which connect the journey of the guests with a strong connection to the surrounding landscape and views, all carefully curated for maximum visual impact.

Materials and Details provide a contrast to the modernistic brutalist structure. Stone tiles and Masonry available from locally sourced suppliers are reinterpreted in an interesting manner, For instance,  the boundary wall terracotta bricks are also used for the interior café walls and stairwell, hence creating a slight ambiguity between the exterior and interior.

Locally crafted doors were also juxtaposed against modern fair faced stucco walls, giving hints of an eccentric folk palette with bold colors coming through the final build.

Architecturally, in order to fit the rooms into the long narrow site , a forested alleyway had to be carved out in between the two blocks of accommodation, leading into a plateau where the pool and poolside bar capture the panoramic view of the valley below . The remaining 18 rooms were tucked below the pool level , each room with a distinctive view of the canyon and privacy.

Spatially compact, it tries to redefine what a hotel provides for the modern holidaymaker - a cool bar , a café for reading working , a pool with a view , a small dining hall and a compact gym – the essentials of the city nomad.
However, the spaces are arranged in such a way that each space feels like an escape from the other spaces, and relate to the site in its own intimate way.

Sourcing of local crafted materials also gives the surfaces a meaning and dimension, so to speak - one that creates the cultural moment for the project, a moment between the traditional and rawness of the construction.
