a bath house for lush sensorial experience in the dynamic play of space and nature


The Saco Lake Wellness Center is to be located adjacent to Saco Lake in New Hampshire, serving as a year round destination for visitors and supporting the long standing culture of outdoor activities established in this historically significant section of the White Mountain Presidential Range.

The design features an underground entrance leading into changing rooms and storage, a central courtyard that brings natural light in, around which programs are organized with a procession of temperature and a looping circulation sequence that provides visitors with immersive bathing and relaxation experience. Parts of the exterior and interior facades are made with glazed openings to emphasize the atmospheric quality of light.
