Narrow and winding landscape, rough coast line surmounted by mountain ridges sliding down to meet the white turbulent waves against the shore…this Hotel and Thalasso Therapy Center comes to embrace a new culture linked to the phenomenal powers of deep see water and answering the demand for the growing awareness in wellness concerns. The shapes are made simple, pervasive, relaxing, of pure origin as ovoid and circles, gently melting with soft cavities in shell-like, fish belly or bay forms. Shapes and forms transcend to the spirit: curves are comforting, circles reassure and horizontality calms down the senses.
