Architecture

Polimeks

In a former life, Alavya was an open-air cinema characterized by orchards and small stone village houses. The hotel is set in five old renovated buildings and one newly built structure, with patios and a courtyard offering places for guests to interact. Pastel French doors, blue wooden window shutters, orange terracotta roof tiles, and black iron balconies add texture to the landscape of orchards and gardens, which is dotted with day beds dressed in white and numerous hideaways amid the trees and gardens.

To bring the hotel’s location to the forefront of the guest experience, Ezer also included hyperlocal design elements, such as the curtains in the Tourmaline building, which are made from the aprons of local villagers. A huge marble table adds a touch of sleek elegance in the reception area, while salvaged olive tanks serve as the occasional olive tree pot.
