Thermal baths in Baia
Four volumes connected by water are located on the last terrace of Baia, looking at the thermal complex and the sea. In the most longitudinal element, which houses the hotel rooms and service spaces, the connection with the outside is constant due to the wooden lattice façade that allows the light and the view pass through it, to a greater or smaller extent depending on the program and the nature's sight. However, the three volumes that house the thermals, are hermetic. The façade creates a gloomy space only illuminated punctually by the light that impinges in the thermes and is reflected in the water through the skylights.
