Hotel Aliah is a sustainable luxury hotel complex for World Cup 2014 that is meant to re-establish a connection between man and the environment. The green-roofed hotel was designed by Hiperstudio and Estudio Arkiz. Their belief, which is in line with the development company, Aliah, is that sustainability is not just a matter of strategies and actions, but of intrinsic values that require adopting a new attitude towards the world.
The Aliah Project is designed to be a comfortable, innovative and transcendental space where guests can find a better, healthier and more balanced way of life. The architecture for the hotel by Hiperstudio & Arkiz is expressly designed to encourage new attitudes and provide opportunities for contemplation, walking and meditation. The buildings are orientated along an axis which is integrated and has views of the surrounding landscape and takes advantage of the sun. Vegetation and green roofs are integral to the design along with natural daylighting and ventilation. Rainwater is harvested and used throughout the building along with recycled grey water for irrigation.
