Words from the architect

A new type of spa that can transmit relax and softness to the users.

The most important thing is to make a spa that haven't a "kitsch" image and that can show a lot of images that we have in our collective memories but without evident post-modern forms. Relaxation and softness can be more appreciated in a dark ambience with less things that can catch our attention.

Relaxation area.

Pink mosaic, black stones and light wood. Target is to make an unitarian image in a dark ambient, so the most important thing is to chose two colors and utilize them with care and elegance. The pavement is made on black stones that remember us a little natural ambient in a tropical wood, pink is a fashion chose: is now the color of staff's t-shirt!
