The project involves the construction of a oriental day SPA in Rome. The clients are important collectors of contemporary art in Rome and at the same time are big lovers of Asia and Asian culture.

The design started from the reuse of an existing detached house, in a rather confused and degraded context, transformed in a contemporary way through simple but substantial changes.

The building become a sculptural object, with a strong and elementary volume, minimal  and primary as a sculpture by Donald Judd but made of a warm material with the touch feeling and  the colour tones of the woods in the traditional oriental architecture. A timeless stereometric form over a chaotic cityscape.
