THE STORY AND THE SOLUTION
A successful project has to arouse something inside. It was our aim. We implemented the idea in the fountain. А continuous flow of water starts at the ceiling and falls to the floor. It became a bridge between two worlds: modern trends and the Japanese aesthetics. Permanence is offset by movement.
Spirituality is a way to simplicity. That's why we used minimalism. As a result, there are lots of meditative emptiness, natural materials. White and gray are colors of choice, and they work well with the design aesthetic. The Japanese motifs (the secrets of ancient medicine) combine with Futurism (advanced technology).
"This is the essence of the architects' supervision – live through the project from the first sketch to the red ribbon."
The project was developed and implemented in six months. Every day we have visited the site to make sure that everything was precisely on schedule, investing all our energy: creative, physical and emotional strength.
Wooden texture brought softness and a certain "sweetness" to the cold white interior. The honey-colored reception sets the atmosphere of relaxation.
Facings on all floors and facade were done in 3x1 m granite slabs from the Laminam. Inside the Spa rooms there are massage tables (STARPOOL), a hydrobath and an individual hammam. Strokes, which perfectly complete the composition, are construction and decoration by Sergey Makhno.
