This property was the summer residence of the Maharaja of Nabha. It is managed by the Claridges group. We were asked to redesign the interiors of the guest rooms. The design concept is centred around old Mussoorie in its heyday - an updated Victorian feel with a touch of luxury. The walls are covered with wallpaper and wooden trim. Door surrounds are highlighted with white paint. The furniture is classic without being ornate. Two schemes were produced.
The 22-room boutique hotel is located in Mussoorie, Uttarakhand, India. The project was completed in Apr 2010. Services engineering by Engineering Design & Consulting Organisation.
