Re-thinking the Hotel Lobby… The Great Madras by FARM

As the concept of bed & breakfast’s gets more popular, hotels need to evolve and change the way they see travel. Set in between rows of shophouses, the lobby of The Great Madras offers a place to breathe, featuring an open layout that blurs the boundaries of the hotel lobby and the bistro. Whether you’re coming as a hotel guest, or just for the bistro, the open, communal setting welcomes all who wants to have a good conversation and a good meal. Such a refreshing change, from the mundane “wait-in-line” atmosphere that usual lobbies evoke.
