Sala Ayutthaya is a boutique hotel in the old capital of Thailand with a view of the Chao Phraya River and a design created by the Onion architectural practice in 2014.
The hotel has 26 rooms and the main entrance is next to a Sala Tree with an iron door set in the long brick façade to connect the exterior with the reception area. This space has a wooden ceiling and it extends to the art gallery, with a double height and an antique wooden door as the main focus here.
The exterior courtyard is visible through the transparent mirrors and the circulation in this area features an interplay of light and shadows due to the parallel brick walls with a complex geometry. The restaurant offers a view of the Putthai Sawan Temple built in 1353 AD and it extends to a riverfront deck with terraces and twelve private residences exhibiting the local craftsmanship through the simple white walls and brickwork inspired from the Chand Baori Step Well of Rajasthan, India.
