The Rezid Thermal Spa is a new concept in the luxury hotel and serviced apartment experience,The Rezid Thermal Spa is a new concept in the luxury hotel and serviced apartment experience, providing the first class modern accommodation that the international business traveller expects but linked to the geology, history and cultural traditions of Tbilisi.
The building’s form is seen as an extension of the cliffs along the River Mtkvari, creating a new landmark in the City visible from a lot of places in the centre and connecting the City to the mountains beyond. The apartments and hotel are both arranged around an internal atrium, the form of the internal space spiralling with ‘echoes’ of the traditional Darbasi lintel structure. The two towers stand separate, but are linked together at lower level emphasising their strength and connection to the rock and providing additional seismic stability. The Spa will utilise the valuable warm mineral waters found in the rocks below Tbilisi providing a completely new modern way of experiencing the thermal waters, while also providing geothermal energy to supplement the demand for heating and cooling in the complex in a natural and sustainable way.
