Critical Questions

    Can a slight disconnect allow for greater connection?

 

Situated within the vast forest of the northern Appalachian mountains, the Saco Bath House merges the given material palette with the existing landscape to create a multifaceted space defined by degrees of elevation, light and comfort.

The structure is disconnected from the ground and relies on a series of ribbon like apertures to vary the comfort levels throughout the program. Several changes in height allow spatial features to further adjust degrees of comfort and privacy.
