This Minimalist Hotel Encourages Complete Rest and Relaxation

This minimalist hotel project by Maya Architects encourages rest, relaxation and personal reflection. The renovated Hotel Sala Ayutthaya is located in the heart of Thailand and marries together contemporary and rustic design detail.

Despite of its modernist design style, this building is also surrounded by brick-constructed partitions that resemble ancient ruin walls. In addition to its stark white facade -- that is complemented with white marble, tiles and a linear pool set-up -- this structure is also home to layered brick spa and reception facilities.

A use of bricks and natural wood can also be seen in the hotel's luxe rooms that marry traditional and modern design details. Maya Architects' minimalist hotel project is also a simple take on luxury, choosing to make a statement with bare details rather than ornamentation.
