Wooden Chalets – by Aliya
Wooden Chalets – by Aliya adhere to strategies such as recycle, up cycle, and reuse and reduce, utilizing materials which are abandoned and also easily found in the neighborhood. Wood from used and abandoned shipping pallets is used as the main material of construction, adding a secondary value to an abandoned product. The raw and rugged nature of the material is in perfect synchronization with the main motive of the initiative; Adapting to nature, rather than changing it!
While a part of the world celebrates the elegance and grandiosity of architecture, the architecture of developing countries celebrates its humbleness to the ground. Such architecture is more about The Nature, The People, The Community, and the Traditional knowledge and Skill of the people
Wooden Chalets – by Aliya is an architectural prototype that essentially redefines The Architecture of an Island through the creative amendment of the face of Sri Lankan Hotel Industry, which is authentically Sri Lankan from its very core and one that upholds and exhibits the Sri Lankan way of life; closely knitted with its nature, its people and the culture.
The perfect end to an adventure filled day would be a relaxing massage or spa treatment at ‘Ayur Vie’.
