The Spa Sauna Retreat - Campania, Tasmania
The spa saunds retreat create the sense of a series of decorative exotic potted plants or vases resting firmly above the undulating landscape of the subject site. The clients brief way to create an unusual series of short stay cabins, which could act in support of a spa retreat that is also proposed as a civic amenity on the site. The architecture contains the ongoing affinity that we feel for the character and its role in the performance, the costume and the cultural symbolism that in this case appears to be misplaced, from a south american or polynesian vernacular hut, into a modern setting of the tasmanian landscape. We are interested in examining the potentiality of architecture to contribute to atmosphere in the realm of tourism & accomodation.
