Ocean Spray resort is a recent addition to the cluster of leisure properties that dot the coast. Its elevation and grand entrance draws one’s attention as you drive down the highway. Designed by well-known, Bangalore-based architects Siraj and Renu, the design imperative was the creation of an iconic resort with elegant landscaping that could be counted among the finer properties in its category.
Resisting the forces of nature in style
Ocean Spray’s location by the Bay of Bengal necessitated careful consideration to design, construction and the optimal selection of material. High humidity, heavy rainfall, salt content in moisture and the area’s proclivity for cyclones influenced the design and structural elevation. Wienerberger ceramic tiles were chosen for their weather resistance and anti-reflective nature. These clay tiles also have qualities like dimensional stability, heat resistance, durability and maintenance friendliness – all highly desirable qualities given the fury of the elements during the annual cyclone season. The guests of the resort stay well protected under this beautiful and natural roof – thanks to the clay tiles.
