Discover the most exclusive 5-Star hotel in Faridabad
The Lalit Mangar is crafted on a narrow 3.78 acre extremely rocky land with natural gradients. It is maticulously designed to blend into the natural scenic beauty of the Aravallies. The resort resembles cascading village moving with the natural contours from courtyard to courtyard in an organic manner.
The unique earth rammed architecture has used raw materials like the earth chalk and gravel in layers. The fifteen inch thick walls are insulated thereby, remaining cool in summer and warm in winter.
Each wall is different in pattern, shade and colour as a result of individual person working on that wall and soil mix generated in that wall.
Rammed earth is non-toxic, non-polluting and breathes. It is low in embodied energy and extremely comfortable to live in. Researchers have proved that rammed earth to be extremely durable and weather resistant.
Termites and other pests simply aren't interested in rammed earth. There are no cavities in walls for pests to live in or to use it as a route to the roof or other timbers. The hotel has been designed as a continuously cascading village street working as per the natural contours of the site moving from courtyard to courtyard in an informal organic manner.
