Taj Palace Hotel / New Delhi
The Taj hotel group engaged us to re-conceptualize their existing all day dining restaurant into an exciting new destination driven food service venue at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi. A concept was developed taking full advantage of its unique views overlooking the central ridge forest reserve of Mumbai, creating a unique greenhouse or conservatory extension with the potential to grow organic herbs, vegetables, spices and flora to be used in the preparation and presentation of its cuisine through hydroponics and horticulture, to create what essentially would become a farmer’s market. “Botanica” is scheduled to open in 2012.
