Arjuna Hotel Batu
July 23, 2017
Against a scenic backdrop of mountainous topography, Arjuna Hotel Batu sits quaintly along a main road.
The site planning was conceptualised as a kampung, an indigenous settlement that promotes social interactions. The colour scheme and materials reference nature—wood, exposed stones and Portland cement—blending the building into the surroundings.
Employing traditional methods of brickmaking, the architects were able to keep the material palette simple by using locally sourced and manually produced resources, thus reducing transportation costs.
The project encouraged community involvement during the construction phase—collaborating with the locals, the most appropriate soil for construction was selected as the raw material to produce the bricks.
