Text description provided by the architects. Just Sleep Jiaoxi , located in Jiaoxi township, Yilan County, Taiwan, is a hot spring hotel renovated from an old 6-floor reinforced concrete building. The idea was to create a form of bathhouse along the balcony with vertical louver attached to it.

The bathhouse images bring back to the memory of good old time: soaking hot spring with families, curling-up smoke, smelling of cypress go along with the sulfur and noise in the dark and glossy Japanese style wooden building.

The building façade was covered with dark stone paint, glazed with deep concave window and attached with wooden-like vertical louver to enclose the bathing space. The fascination for the mystic home of Yubaba (character of movie “The Spirit Away) within the mountains, for darkness and light, for light reflections on the water or in the steam saturated air, discover the richness between bathing and green nature-these notions inspired the architect.

138-unit hotel rooms were equipped with private bathhouse to try to integrate the sense of relaxation into the design and enjoy a highly sensuous and restorative experience.
