A SPA
ODYSSEY


PROJECT: ATELIER CARACAS
TYPE: ARCHITECTURE
LEAD DESIGNER: JUANCHO MESA
CONSTRUCTION & ENGINEERING: ATELIER CARACAS

PHOTOGRAPHY: OUTER VISION + CATALINA QUINTANA



SOMETIME AGO WE WERE APPROACHED BY A CLIENT ASKING US TO DESIGN A DAY SPA IN CARACAS, STATING LITERALLY THAT THEY WANTED SOMETHING “OUT OF THIS WORLD”. CONSIDERING THAT THE SPA IS IN A CONSIDERABLY BUSY AREA OF THE CITY, THEY DESIRED IT TO ACT AS A PLEASANT HERMETIC BUBBLE, AND AIRTIGHT SPACE ISOLATED FROM THE NOISE OF THE CITY, AND WHERE ITS FREQUENTLY POLLUTED ENVIRONMENT SIMPLY WOULD NOT EXIST NOR APPLY.


UPON CONSIDERING THIS WE DECIDED TO ACT FOLLOWING FAITHFULLY THE CLIENT’S IDEA, AS IN ABSOLUTE CONTRAST TO THE URBAN CONTEXT AROUND THE LOCATION, WITH AN ARCHITECTURE AIMING TO EVOKE THE IMAGERY OF OUTER SPACE, THE MYSTERIOUS AND THE “OTHER WORDLY”.
