"ΛΟΥΤΡΙΚΕΣ ΕΓΚΑΤΑΣΤΑΣΕΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΧΩΡΟΙ ΦΙΛΟΞΕΝΙΑΣ ΕΠΙΣΚΕΠΤΩΝ ΣΤΗΝ ΠΕΡΙΟΧΗ ΘΕΡΜΕΣ ΞΑΝΘΗΣ”...../....."THERMAL BATHS, ACCOMMODATION AND ANCILLARY FACILITIES IN THE AREA OF THERMES, XANTHI - GREECE.
The studio course focuses on a landscape, rich in thermal mineral springs, at a remote mountainous area of the Prefecture of Xanthi, near the borders between Greece and Bulgaria. The study area is on the verge of a small settlement, a place with important geographical and historical particularities. The site will become a kind of platform to devise structures and also the physical context for analysis, programming, and design of special facilities. A key aim of the design studio, consist the concept of an holistic integration of architecture into the specific natural environment associated with the existence of thermal mineral springs in the area. Facilities: thermal spa facilities, spa, etc. along with accommodation and ancillary facilities should be developed so as to operate with relative autonomy, yet at the same time be perceived as a unique whole and as a context, flexible to create interactive relationships and open passages into a direct relationship with the landscape . So the design of the building construction
demands a gradual "dilution" to the landscape and its transformation into a walk‐ passage
