062 FOCUS


Tey are connected by a spiral staircase, expanding around a 20m-tall light well. At the top, it leads to the forest. At the bottom of the light well is the plunge pool used for hydrotherapy. For the night scene, an in-ground light dish, which patterns the inside of the plunge pool, hints at the moon’s reflection on water, adding visual interest and a sense of harmony. To reach the plunge pool, the guest’s path crosses through rooms with different levels of daylight, which the lighting concept had to take into account. For this purpose, we developed special luminaires that imitate daylight to make the transitions flow more evenly. Te ground floor of the spa area houses the reception, consultation and changing rooms, as well as pilates and fitness studios. At entrance level is a series of carved spaces, where elliptical geometries intertwine and guide the guest through a meandering catacomb-like passage with no daylight.


To mitigate the harsh entry from daylight into the dark catacombs, the corridor and reception area are lit with 300mm-deep, tuneable white LED COB daylight tubes, specially designed and made for the project. Tese link with two daylight sensors for a smooth adjustment. Te gold-plated niches were highlighted with warm mini wallwashers for an even distribution. A feature pendant in the reception area fills the main catacomb with soft light.


Te guest continues on to the light well, around which the staircase leads to the rest of the building. Tis receives natural light through an upper opening. Special luminaires were also developed for the stairs, extending from wall to wall. Tey have up/down lighting components on independent controls, and different beam distributions in order to adapt to the varying height from one flight of stairs to the other. Tis way, the mystical effect is balanced throughout the route, in harmony with the daylit well. Te first floor houses the main spa areas. Te floor is dominated by the Sphere Pool, inspired by the architecture of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, and characterised, as its name suggests, by spherical shapes. It is illuminated from above and below, and highlights the four perimeter openings.


Te 1.5m-deep skylight that allows daylight in from above is supplemented in the evening hours by a cylindrical lightbox, integrated into the architecture. It lets natural and also diffuse artificial light into the sphere pool. To achieve this, neutral white (4,000K) LED strips were arranged in a gradient pitch on an aluminium cylinder for optimum light distribution, while the plexiglass diffuser cylinder spreads the light into the skylight shaft. Te optical effect of water waves on the surface of the dome is achieved by four high-output spotlights,


‘Low levels of illumination, tone contrast and detailing integrated seamlessly with the architecture characterise the scheme throughout’
