ADIRA KERALA RESORT
The design inspiration originated from the existing landscape environment unique to this region of Kerala. The landscape environment composed of canals alternating with strips of land. Wild grasses and a canopy of swaying coconut palms above inspired us to look for clues that could retain this character while developing a bespoke resort. In addition, all parts of the existing property are accessed by water. We felt it important to retain this accessibility and enhance or introduce new water channels that provide access and views throughout the master plan.
Within this overall framework of an idyllic natural landscape, the specific selection of plant materials, hardscape materials, and lighting is planned to provide an identity to each of the amenity spaces and villa clusters.
The overall experience of the resort landscape is best expressed as an organic landscape that had always been there with buildings sensitively inserted amongst the natural landscape.
