As part of an international competition bkm group designed a Spa & Wellness Club in Bologna, Italy at the former factory.

The adaptation requaired a great precision to retain its appearance and internal structure, while incorporating the new use. We aimed to create a feeling of new discovery in proposed design through the system of radial approches to the building. Visitor can almost see and hear the relaxing sound of falling water and it makes one curious what is behind the white, transparent wall. The interior is divided into water and spa zones with different types of activites. We located a public park at the roof where visitors have the opportunity to start cultivating on small scale, by learning the process from the start. The cultivation is 100% organic.
