By connecting all the existing and new facilities of the thermal complex 'terme tuhelj' in croatia and integrating them into a new and meaningful ensemble, the concept of a 'detached' hotel is conceived. It provides the users a connection with nature from all the inside spaces.
The selection of materials for the facade envelope marks the theme of duality (light / heavy). The exterior siding is wrapped with aluminum panels. The rest of the fabric and roof surfaces are covered with 5000 m² fibreC panels in terra, partly opening as perforated 'eyelids' in front of the windows. This intervention enters the dialogue with the existing context by using contemporary architectural language. Through that dialogue it aims to establish new and more complex spatial relations.
