The project acts as a hub to discover the treasures of nature like the
foundation for body care and well-being.
Well being is obtained through the water: Salus for water. In this
the idea of the idea of the project was born from the intrigue of the physicist
and the natural transition from the ground, passing through the water to get there
the air, with the passage of purification from what is earth to elevate
and lighten your "soul" until you reach the ethereal. These transitions
the phases are those sustained in a health center where the incoming user is tense
and absorbed by worries and world affairs, and only through
the purification path can get rid of these burdens.
Unlike the industrial location, the spa is surrounded by green areas
designed specifically, in order to mark the desire for sustainability and
In fact, along the path are several green islands, defined by the aggregation
of evergreens and deciduous, united for optimal exposure, but that
they differ from color and flowering period, so that they are never completely naked
and monochrome areas throughout the year.
Further on the pools of outdoor pools was studied aromachromotherapy
given by the arrangement of herbs and plants / bushes in
The green areas adjacent to the pools are equipped with aromatic plants
such as laurel leaves, lemongrass, lavender, butler, mauve, mint, oregano,
rosemary, sage, salty and thyme, all with different organoleptics
characteristics and type of flowering / period.
For the hedge that runs along the entire lot is used osmotic,
evergreen plant with bloom in summer-autumn.
In the green areas on the south side, evergreen plants are inserted
(azalea, cotoneaster, jasmine, juniper and viburnum) and deciduous
(Tree of Judas, wisteria tree, forks, magnolia, willow and several thorns).
The area on the back, mostly north-oriented, but also east-west, he wants
be accompanied by tall trees (to allow even the view from the roof
practicable) and mixed evergreens (holly, camellia, rhododendron) and
deciduous (maple trees of different species depending on heights)
and foliage, lime colors).
This idea of lightening and purification translates into two different
languages: distribution and material. In the development of the spa, in
in fact, the purpose of the uses of the environments is followed by those with a
more grounded purpose (eg, gym) to those in which you are complete
relaxation (eg the meditation area).
Such a move is recognizable from the outside thanks to the building
envelope, made of biocompositi materials, subjected to one
gradually emptying progressively to become completely enamelled and light.
Within the area of the project, the intervention finds its reason with a nonlinear line
and faces south, so as to welcome and embrace as much as possible
sunlight, both in summer and winter.
The bearing structure is made of laminated wood, to emphasize the bond
with the earth and the altitude toward the air, as a tree grows naturally.
The substructure of the facade panels is in steel, corresponding to a
transparent rear frames.
