Gega Spa Tibet
21 August 2011
 

The Yarlung Tsangpo river runs hidden in the southern mountains in Tibet; carving some spectacular gorges,that can reach more than 5000 m deep. Near Pai town; at the foot of the Namchabarwa mountain(7782 m), lies a small valley where the gega spa is located. The design of the spa works as a landscape operation to hollow out this valley. There is no visible perception of the building from the outside leaving only the evocation of a movement path into and through the earth towards the spa. The spa itself works predominantly with a local stone found in the neighboring region. This sparse material palette coupled with the bodies’ interaction with different scales of spring pools creates the sense of an elemental space which places the emphasis firmly on the ritual of bathing.

The experience of this spa is about protection, fluidness, and the presence of nature. The spa is surrounded by a double skin of large stone walls which acts to both house the functional program of the building and also to create a form of protective layering between the inner area of the pools and the outside world. Within this interior world of the pools movement is guided by a transitional space operating akin to an engawa; an external covered path that links all programs within the spa. This movement path traces its course around the water at the heart of the spa, with the pools enclosed by a layered series of walls, yet open to the sky of the experience of nature. 

西藏格嘎温泉

雅鲁藏布江位于在西藏南部山区,并形成了一些深达5000多米的壮观峡谷。格嘎温泉位于派镇附近,南迦巴瓦峰(7782米)脚下的一个小山谷中。

温泉设计以景观设计的方式在山谷中挖洞。从建筑外围来看,除了穿透地坪抵达温泉的通道,几乎无法察觉什么。

温泉主体上采用邻近地区的一种石材,稀疏的物料调板,加上人体与不同规模的泉池互动,创造出一个强调沐浴仪式的空间。

温泉的设计体验注重保护性、流动性,以及对自然的呈现。围绕温泉周边的双层的大型石墙不仅具有基本的建筑功能,也是一层内池与外界之间的保护性分隔。

内部泉池沿着类似縁側的过渡空间移动;一条有遮盖的外通道,链接温泉内的所有功能。这条路径围绕核心的泉池,以一系列分层的墙包围泉池,而向天空开放,让人体验自然。
