located in the outskirts of mendoza amongst a peaceful setting of poplars, fruit trees, vineyards and unabated views of the andes, the ‘entrecielos

hamam and spa’ extends this tranquility to its visitors as they arrive for a physical and spiritual purification. argentinean practice¬†A4 estudio¬†designed

the experience to begin with a departure from the automobile, as the guest must walk by foot along a path flanked by fields of grapes to begin,
perhaps unknowingly, the first degree of separation from the cluttered chaotic world. simple powerful geometries define the reinforced concrete
envelope of the structure imprinted with the horizontal individual planks that made up the form work. a ring of circulation in dark contemplative
spaces services all the program grouped into the center of the complex, illuminated by thin voids in the walls and ceiling subtly highlighting certain
features as a ‘point of intensity.’ the interior is almost devoid of ornamentation, allowing the purity of the natural materials and the basic geometric
shapes to inform the character of the rooms.
