UP: underwater pilgrimage
UP follows the axis that conforms to the slope of the mountain, with the healing retreat cascading in a terraced layout on both sides, creating a clear circulation path and serving as the creator of the narrative. Locally-sourced stone are incorporated to embrace the local culture.
Its inspiration stems from geothermal energy, as one descends, the temperature of the hot springs gradually rises, offering diverse mineral healing experiences until one eventually immerses themselves in the water. In contrast to the common desire to ascend to higher vantage points for a broader perspective, UP invites you to a journey that pilgrimage to submerge underwater, finding inner balance and harmony in the tranquil underwater world.
Space embedded within the mountain including lounges, indoor healing areas, meditation chambers, and therapeutic outdoor hot springs, which are the only gateways for natural light and breeze to penetrate, allowing the body to feel the ever-changing atmosphere and temperature, also offering unobstructed panoramic views, where the magnificent snow-capped mountains and thin mists weave a natural stage.
When looking up under the water, the sight beheld is not just the stunning views but also the self who embarked on this journey and the path traversed.
“It is a suggestive space“
