From a distance one sees a plane floating above the landscape serenely as if a slice of cloud floating amidst the valley with its mountainous backdrop.

 

The hiking path along the Lagoa Comprida extends all the way to the east end of the lake and leads visitors to the Site Lake Baths. This path meanders through the natural topography and winds through a number of habitable volumes.

 

The journey is not merely a bath experience but also a series of encounter with natural wonders: forest, flora, lake, boulders and cliff. One twists in and out of the building boxes, journeying between interior and exterior, bathing the light and the dark, sensing movement and stillness.

 

It is a place where nature exists as spatial elements; a ground that allows one to experience and to uncover the most honest side of mother nature.

 

This is the Lagoa Comprida Lake Baths, a realization of nature as architecture.

從遠處眺望,便能看到一片細長的薄片仿如一絲白雲懸浮在山巒中。

 

山徑沿著湖邊一直延伸至其東面的盡頭,引領旅客到這個温泉旅館。這條山徑隨著山勢自然發展,最後穿插幾個量體。

 

這趟旅程不單是一個温泉的體驗,更是一連串大自然的接觸: 樹林,花叢,湖泊,石塊及山涯。在建築群中穿梭,室內與室外的交錯,讓人沐浴於光與暗中,感受每一刻的動與靜。

 

這是一片獨特的地土:大自然自身成為空間的元素,也讓人去發掘和體驗大自然最真實的一面。這裡是勘派達湖畔温泉旅館,一個讓大自然成為建築的實踐。
