The design of the spa and meditation building is inspired by the montainous environment of the site and aims to connect the building with the ground and the landscape. Rammed earth is used for the construction, making use of the environmentally friendly, ancient local building material.
The earth walls are arranged to create calming spaces and volumes, a relaxing athmosphere for the patrons of the hot spring bath. Natural light shines through the openings and allows views out into the landscape which the building has been constructed from.
