Cover: The resort in the temple town
of Tirupati designed by Mumbai-based
SJK Architects is a contemporary
building with a central open courtyard,
which is a water body. The all-day
dining space – The Lotus Café
(glasswalled space seen in the centre
of the image) is envisioned as a lotus in
the pond, and appears to be 'floating' in
this water body.
