Hyatt Centric, Bangalore
Urban Hotel / India / HBA Mumbai / Completed in 2018
A division of the world’s leading hospitality design firm, Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), has helped the Hyatt Centric brand make their first mark in India by designing the country’s first Hyatt Centric - Hyatt Centric MG Road Bangalore. Located in the heart of the bustling city centre of Bengaluru, the property features 143 well-appointed guestrooms that will serve as a platform for guests who want to explore and share all that is vibrant and dynamic about the garden city. The property was designed as more than a hotel – it’s a launchpad to seeing, tasting and feeling everything the city has to offer. Upon being appointed for the landmark design, Studio HBA’s team took to the streets of Bengaluru to find out what was at its heart and the lifelines leading to it. The property’s immediate vicinity to the historical layers of found throughout the city allowed the designers to pull from a rich history. They quickly learned that the site was at the edge of Kempegowda’s kingdom, who is credited with founding Bengaluru in the early 16th century. As such, Mahatma Gandhi (MG) Road, where the property sits, has seen the lavish parades of the British cantonment, the lush green landscapes of the botanical city, and is now the at the centre of this pulsating and rhythmic metropolis.
