Project TUTC Kohima Camp Nagaland

Pegging New Standards for Luxury

Challenge

A first for Luxury “Glamping” in India, we were assigned the design of a truly mobile camp that could move from one location to another leaving behind minimal infrastructure and ensuring that the guests enjoyed a sense of wholesome luxury in the wild.

Interpretation

A small hilly and densely wooded piece of land was identified for the camp that is set up for the duration of the hornbill festival. The Alder tree forest was left untouched and the footprint of the tents were oriented to avoid any damage to vegetation. All pathways were of gravel sourced locally, the common sit outs were interpreted from the Naga village “murung” (circular rock seating around a fire pit). This was to be a truly mobile camp which was transported from Ladakh in Northern India all the way across the country to
the far eastern corner state of Nagaland.

We interpreted the challenge into solutions derived from the local materials, and landscape. Our design solution had to meet the stringent requirements of luxury hospitality, making sure that all aspects of the camp that the guests come in contact with expressed uncompromising aesthetics and comfort, while also designing for ease of packing, storage and transport during offseason.

Solution

We explored materials that evoked luxury while staying true to the solid construction and longevity that a travelling camp needs. The Luxury Camp has been created using traditional construction to create the plinths and detailing, to deliver a pristine experience that stands apart from any existing offering in the market. The furniture is extremely well-built and solid, designed to completely knock-down or fold to fit into custom packaging which could be transported across the country.

Success

An internationally acclaimed and awarded hospitality project for its complete offer and unmatched personalised hospitality, the TUTC glamping experience is on the list of discerning guests in search of new, personalised, luxe experiences.
