Guigu SPA Pavilion
The project design starts from the origin of life, rejects the complicated embellishment but retains the most original, pristine architectural origin, material origin, creative origin, thus leaving a pure field. In the slowly flowing romance, you will perceive the worldly concerns and experience the unity of body and soul.
The case design does not regard the building as an isolated “object”, nor deliberately pursue symbolic and visual needs, but attaches great attention to the coordination between internal space and external environment. It does not only keep the true state in terms of material, but also seeks to return to nature in the tone to form an overall beauty of composition. Both sides of the artificial bridge between the reception area and lounge area were originally two walls, which limited the stretch of space. Later, the walls were replaced by grilles, from which the external landscape was visible. In addition, soft light and internal shadow was used to create a kind of warm and relaxing ambience. A pond was dug on both sides to sublime the theme of “SPA space” in the glittering waves.
Impetuous modern people suffer lot from the temptation of the external world, resulting in unrest mind. Many of them start to trace the origin and yearn for the “ethereal, serene, elegant and simple” spiritual realm advocated by Zen. Based on cherishing of traditional culture and satisfaction of reality, this case understands the memories of the new rich and provides a Zen space matching the future recreational trend. The project design starts from the origin of life, rejects the complicated embellishment but retains the most original, pristine architectural origin, material origin, creative origin, thus leaving a pure field.

Unlike the general SPA salon, it does not open for business, but provides an opportunity to life-loving people to experience “another” place. In space creation, it focuses on the richness and layering of forms as well as the tacit degree with the project temperament. The pavilion attaches importance to the interspersed and staggered layout aesthetics. Bridge and water is used to connect the space of the reception hall and lounge by bridge and water, corridor is used to connect the space of lounge and physiotherapy area; and transparent sliding door is used to connect the space of bathing zone and massage zone. The overall spatial structure planning makes full use of “winding path”, an oriental garden way to express the cultural and spirit pattern between landscape, object and people.
