Architecture & Design

Arya Arkananta derived from language of our ancestor (Sanskrit), which means Arya (Noble) whose path is being illuminated or being grant wisdom for a betterment.

Hence our architectural design profoundly based on the deep philosophical meaning of the chosen name, as being taught from the days of our ancestor in ‘TRI HITA KARANA’ balance is the key to create a harmonious living environment.

However our ancestor is often express their messages in symbolic language, applied in various forms such as relief, architectural design, offering and so forth.

While staying with us you will be able to see direct application of these symbols and decodes them together.

The Gate

Arya arkananta gate inspired by Wringin Lawang means Gapura or Candi Bentar, during Majapahit Kingdom era.

The concept of this gate is to describe where positive and negative traits always coexist, which can be seen from the right and left pole of the gate,

The unoccupied middle room and the step of the stairs that deliver us in and out symbolized our life journey.

Whereas through it we will experience up and down of our journey as human, and to remind us that we need to keep our balance and stay connected to the source of life which is the openness (unoccupied middle room that connected directly to the sky above)
