CLIENT: Private
SCOPE: Planning, Visualization
COMPLETION: N/A 

ALA provided site planning, branding and conceptual visioning services for a world-class meditation retreat and destination health center that will serve 10,000+ guests per year.  Meditation hall and cabin site planning were phase 1 priorities that set a refined, comfortable and timeless overall aesthetic tone.  The site was laid out based on Vedic principles which dictate north-south orientation of circulation paths and precise proportion, measurements and placement of site elements in order to create the most auspicious facility environment.  Retreat branding was also incorporated into the visioning process via elements such as the Vastu fence.
