Spa - Part 1

In the historical town of Botshabelo a place of relaxation is created. This intervention is placed alongside the natural river, using its water as the source of the exterior and interior pools. These pools have a natural filtration and cleaning system, made possible by using the correct vegetation and flow of water. The main building envelops two of these pools with a simple, modernist box slot into the sloping landscape. Further up treatment 'pods' are placed, built of natural stone found on site, with each providing a private space for revitalisation. This project was done together with Liezl-Mari Nienaber, who designed the landscape for the spa.
