silence

- A Private Session with Nature - 

Carrara thermal bath 
Competition entry - Rethinking competition - 2016


on top of white quarry landscape, 
how if there is a space to contemplate, about us and nature to live in harmony.

Silence 
The proposal is to design a space that could stimulate a relax and calm feeling 
to the visitor, as well as to stimulate the awareness of senses - see, feel the nature.
A space that could bring a silent atmosphere, and frame the beauty of nature. 

Initial Ideas
The ideas starts from being serene with nature. Creating a simple marble box, small footprints, not to stand out but blend with the existing marble landscape.

Intimacy with nature
A private session with nature. Bringing the  scale 1 to 1 between nature and visitor.

Space experiences
The idea is to create a variation of experiences about feeling the water, texture, temperature, and also the water depth to bring unique experiences to the visitor.
Visitor will approach to a small hole inside a marble box, that bring them into a very enclosed to an open exposure space, gradation and contrast from dark to bright.

Contemplate and rethink our relation with nature.
