Aarvli Resort / Serie Architects

Construction is currently underway as of last month for the Aarvli Resort, designed by Serie Architects. Located in Goa, India, the project draws inspiration from the famous forts of Maharashtra. A typical fort is based on a system of massive ramparts that closely follow the contours of its mountain-side setting. Points of occupation were created by thickening the structure to create circular defensive bastions. The resulting architecture has a compelling curvilinear plan that is both easily extendible and in harmony with its natural context. More images and architects’ description after the break.
