Situated on a tight urban lot this small boutique hotel is structured around a sequence of public spaces - a large forecourt (which is in contrast to all the buildings around behind high compound walls), a central sky light court and a secret garden at the rear.
Entering under a low roof the scale gradually increases as one works ones way through the building.
The intimate rooms have small gardens and terraces attached and are finished in mud plaster and roofed with ack arches.
