Water, in Spanish agua (from the latin word aqua), is a substance whose molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom (H2O). Water is essential for the survival of all known forms of life. The term water, generally, refers to the substance in its liquid form, but it can be in solid form called ice, and in gaseous form called vapor. The water covers 71% of the earth's crust.
The human body is composed of between 55% and 78% of water, depending on its sizes and its constitution. To avoid disorders, the body needs about seven liters of water daily; the exact amount will vary depending on the level of activity, temperature, humidity and other factors.
According to an experiment, the water molecule has different forms depending on external agents to which it is subjected. (music, behaviors)
As water is an essential “source of life” to the human body we have split its molecule to inspire us in the development of a luxury spa.
The geometry of its molecule could serve as a template to organize the room by creating a space planning divided in three floors that do not coincide in order to create double and triple heights.
We imagine a “Place” with organic forms built with fine and natural materials, soft colors, generous space and privacy.
