Modern home architecture usually focuses on a certain type of construction material, or tries to make the most of a design theme. However, this contemporary residence envisioned by Metropolis Design and entitled Spa House was developed in strong connection to a different type of element: water. Located in a coastal suburb of Cape Town, South Africa, this spectacular looking building is multi-functional and houses living, recreational and spa facilities.
The idea to integrate a spa in this modern residence was probably not difficult to find, as the site of the property can only inspire serenity and relaxation. Here is an excerpt from the official description of the architects: “The house is conceived of as a hovering set of elements, suspended over a large waterscape, which forms an extended terrace on the mountainside. Water constitutes the primary experience of the building. The floor planes are arranged to provide contrasting experiences of water, and the underwater spa with large viewing windows into the pool has a sense of stillness and mystery.”
With an impeccable contemporary design, the Spa House provides fascination, no matter what the stand point. The interiors are spacious and each room communicates well with the surrounding environment, through generously-sized windows.
