Text description provided by the architects. The Chevalier Morales version of this new type of playground for the body and mind offers a sensitive contemporary design. Three separate buildings are placed delicately on the manmade topography and look out onto the Lac des Battures. The buildings are occupied by saunas, massage and relaxation rooms, Turkish baths and other spaces necessary to make a functional spa. Covered in clay grey brick – a Nuns Island requirement - and white wood, the buildings exude calm and serenity. Brass elements like strange sculptures, gargoyles and interior furniture are making reference to all piping, hid underground or in mechanical rooms, responsible for the magical experience that offers the spa.
