Select simple from complex; purity is born in silence
SPA is a means of relieving fatigue; art is the key to ease the mind.In this project, we added life concept of “slow rhythm” to the business contents on body recuperation, so that the body can be relaxed and the emotion can be kept good. Remind people to slow down, concern and love themselves, pay attention to the surroundings, and find balance in their life.
Fine sand, green leaves, and waves… The atmosphere of vacation can reduce the tension to the environment and recall the experience of the natural beauty of life itself. In this project, we were inspired by Stone Houses Town on a sea island to restore people’s most simple longing for life quality.
The arch structure originated from the stone buildings, which is an iconic presence in the Greek landscape and full of original vitality. On this basis, we added the motion attitude of island broadleaf trees and sea waves, and extended arched door form to a continuous classical arch structure, which served as the cornerstone of space language.
Complete the transition and transformation of the scene in the green.
Express a casual relaxed atmosphere with coarse texture.The soft lines and pure white space simulated a peaceful and gentle holiday style, and restarted aesthetic perception of body and mind.
The terrazzo floor simulated the granular sensation of the beach in a freehand manner, and the repeated arched structure weaved the scene of looking far over the arch windows at the blue seaside of Greek. Under the broad green leaves there is joint furniture, and the large pottery jars and pieces of fine wood in the space restored the living scenes of paleolithic aborigines along the coast.
Tranquil and secret tropical garden.Like the siren in myth, man’s pursuit for the mysterious beauty of nature is everlasting. In the booth area, we took good advantage of the difference between silent coastal fortitude boulders and soft green plants, to foil a sense of architectural tranquillity with the soft curved outlines of arch structure, and the wood floor was separated from the stone wall by plants, leaving a light band, which was to simulate sunlight through among the big rocks, creating the peaceful atmosphere of a resort garden at the foot of the coastal sandstones.
Create an uninterrupted sense.On the corridor, the warm candlelight sketches the contours of the arc dome, and the greenery spreads all the way into the whole space from the hall, sparking the natural primitive experience together with the deep-wood-color door structure and the plaiting articles on the wall. The thoughts soothed by the pure white space of the lobby are gradually introduced into the romantic and amorous island artistic atmosphere.
Get close to the natural materials.The inverted reflections of wooden color and green plants in the box constitute the seaside freehand landscape paintings, and the retro metal components under the dome drive a person to return to classical romance in impression.
The rattan plaited articles on the background side is telling the handicraft art of nature. The swaying branches and leaves behind the corrugated glass are looming, glimmering out of a semi-closed structure, which not only retains the mystery, but also brings people closer to the space.
The warm sand, greenery and the sea waves stretching far away put your mind at ease; under the dome, walking on the romantic island, you can taste the beauty of life again.
