DESIGN OF AN AYURVEDIC HEALTH CENTRE AND ReSORT THESIS
PROPOSAL
1.0 ELABORATION OF THE PROPOSED TOPIC :
INTRODUCTION:
Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is a system of Hindu traditional medicine
native to the Indian subcontinent and a form of alternative medicine. The
oldest known Ayurvedic texts are the Surutha Sahitha and the Charaka
samhitha. These Classic sanskrit texts are among the foundational and
formally compiled works of Ayurveda.
By the medieval period, Ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of
medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of
various ailments Practices that are derived from Ayurvedic medicine are
regarded as part of complementary and alternative medicine, and along
with Siddha Medicine and Traditional Chinese medicine forms the basis for
systems medicine.
Ayurveda is at present well integrated into the Indian National health care
system, with state hospitals for Ayurveda established across the country. In
the United States, the practice of Ayurveda is licensed in complimentary
heath care.

NEED:
Ayurveda is one of the oldest forms of Indian medicine. The field of
Ayurveda just doesnt include a medical system but it is well known for
curing of many anatomical disorders and for its stress relieving massages. It
not just being a field of medicine also represents the culture of india.In the
modern world where massage centres and spas have become a part of
lifestyle, A well sophisticated Ayurvedic resort would attract a lot of
medical tourist as well as people from all walks of life who would love to
relieve their stress in their holidays.

REASON:
Like many other resources our country possess, this is an important one
which deserves no less importance than other forms of medicine. To
promote tourism with what we inherited from the past is more appropriate
than superficially creating spaces that looks out of place in the context. This
project is appropriate for an interior thesis because of the vast number of
possibilities in the many different interior spaces.
AIM:
To create a calm, peaceful, rejuvenating and out of the city
experience by dealing with the materials and creating feelings in
space rather than creating a superficial form.
To create interior spaces using the local material and workmanship
and at the same time make it look as timeless as possible. To
experiment with the local material available to its fullest extent and
deriving various possibilities.

I.D CONTENT IN THE PROPOSED PROJECT:
o The main aim is to design the interiors which will create a sense of peace
and ease. A calm and friendly surrounding, whether it be health care or
recreation, both be addressed in a similar fashion without compromising on
the function.
o To use local materials and still achieve luxury that ll match the international
standards and more.
RESTAURANT:
o Likewise, the restaurant will also be designed using locally available
materials and trials will be made to break the monotony of the traditional
design. Instead, studies will be made on the principles governing the
traditional building style and it will be incorporated in a contemporary
fashion.
SPAS & MASSAGE PARLOURS
o The spa and massage parlors will be carefully designed to match the
international standard. Semi open spaces connected to the nature will be
provided. Stone furniture and other materials will be used.
