In the heart of the Parioli neighborhood in Rome, we are bringing to completion the project for a luxury oriental day-spa, contained within a wood volume suspended and projecting over the street.

The entrance is by a base along the sidewalk which leads to a wood steps suspended above a water slide and flanked by wooden walls illuminated from below. The basement level is built around an open cloister and is occupied by the lobby and wet areas with a glass hammam overlooking a large whirlpool. An iron open staircase passes through the two upper levels inside a red-orange lacquered horn and arrives on the upper level under a glass roof.

From here you can go outside in a open-air terrace with a large water mirror of 10 cm thick that contains within three circular whirlpools. The internal spaces are divided according to the cadence of the original structure  into four large treatment suites per floor, fully glazed on the front side, with access from a open path disposed parallel to the facade at the back. The materials used inside are all natural and precious: brushed black granite flooring and washbasins and bathtubs, and open pore timber screens and walls coverings with hidden source indirect lighings.

The project moves from a pre-existence denying its formal language in favor of a formal, functional and energy redefinition, like an example of regeneration of existing buildings in an urban consolidated and conservative as well as chaotic and degraded context, affirming its contemporary and indicating its possible redevelopment. The result has been reached by the rationalization of the existing volumes and with the extension of the terrace on the front side that have been enclosed in a rectangular shape by a new wood covering which works as thermic regulator.

The new shape, is a wooden box with closed sides and a  windowed front facing the street rotated respect it. The first level, on the back respect to the second one, is hidden from the road by an enclosure of horizontal timber gratings, so that the cantilevered volume of the second level seems to levitate above the sidewalk apparently without support. The entrance is by a base along the sidewalk which leads to a wood steps suspended above a water slide and flanked by wooden walls illuminated from below.
