Comfort Inn Heritage, Mumbai

Comfort Inn Heritage, Mumbai

This is one of the older properties remodeled by the firm. It was actually built as a girls’ hostel, owned by Tata group; later leased out for a hotel. The building had a unique structural plan- each room was about two- and-a-half feet above the level of the corridor outside. The room sizes were also odd; ranging from 120 sq. ft. to 165 sq. ft. the other constraints were that there were no toilet shafts; and also that despite being a choice hotel, the locality in which it is  situated is a heavily residential one, so family wear and tear was also a huge  factor in the choice of materials and accessories. However, the final outcome seems to have weighed out the stringent parameters for design.
