Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield Bangalore wins multiple awards at SIA Architectural Design Awards 2010, Singapore
Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces is delighted to announce that Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bangalore has won three awards – ‘Interior Design Award’, ‘Architecture Award’ and ‘2010 Building of The Year Award’ at the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) Architectural Design Awards 2010. The design of Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bangalore was selected from 180 global entries.
Mr. Ajit Pavithran, General Manager of Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bangalore said: “We are very proud to receive this much coveted award that recognises the distinction found in exceptional creativity. The unique design of Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bangalore has set a mark for innovation for architects around the globe. It will stand as a beacon of innovation in this technology city. ”
The Taj team worked with Warner Wong Design, Singapore to address the needs of the discerning business traveller, whilst redefining the hotel as a social and contemporary cultural hub for both the IT Park and the local population.
Nature and technology is central to the design concept of Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bangalore, with designers using digital imagery of the surrounding landscape as a basis for its plan. The hotel now resembles a digitised version of its surroundings.
The pleasant climate of Bangalore, as well as low height restrictions, was pivotal to the design. The end result is a playful mix of transparency and layering within the interiors and exteriors.
The podium of the hotel forms a mobius strip, with its twists and folds extending the perception of space and blurring the distinction between building and ground, architecture and landscape. The hotel’s three stories hover above the ground level with the 199 rooms flexing their way around the site. Public and private spaces twist and flow in an endless promenade of spatial experiences, drawing references to traditional Indian dance forms.
Sustainability plays a key role, with the landscaped grass plane reducing the heat of the building. Rainwater is also harvested from here and channeled for reuse.
Vivanta by Taj – Whitefield, Bangalore is located 45km from Bangalore Airport, at the entrance of the International Tech Park Bangalore (ITPB). Business facilities at the hotel include OVAL, a 24-hour business centre, webcast and video-conferencing facilities, secretarial and translation services, as well as mobile phones, SIM cards and portable printers for hire. The in-room dining, fitness centre and laundry services all operate on a 24-hour basis as does the hip diner, Latitude, serving a range of world cuisine around the clock. Other restaurants and bars include Tease, Terracotta and Caramel, offering everything from casual all-day light meals, to exotic cocktails and formal fine dining.

Spices, vibrant colours, and evocative textures – these are the elements we utilized to create a truly sensory experience, which we hope will awaken the memories, desires and ambitions of a people deeply rooted in tradition but yearning to modernize. While the overall approach is contemporary and urban, we aimed to create something thoroughly Indian, by combining bright colors and lively texture reminiscent of a walk through an Indian bazaar.
