An in-depth look at Simone Micheli’s surreal and fascinating spa in Sarajevo

    The wonderful spa in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina – designed by Simone Micheli and engineered by Aquaspecial – is shaped as a surreal and fascinating place, able to receive and project humans into another world, suspended among space and time and out of traditional visions of reality.

    The involving and intriguing atmosphere of the spa embraces guests, promoting all the senses’ relaxation and the loosening of the bodies and minds of guests. The natural world is present inside the structure giving birth to soft dimensions that, combining their essences, melt together. Perspectives are many and the point of view continually changes; thanks to fascinating games of mirrors and screens, the image becomes a determining icon.

    Water passes incessantly through the space, dividing into many directions and involving visitors into the eternal and cyclical stream of life. The Sarajevo Spa appears as an ‘out-of-conventions’ place, a purifying and welcoming space, able to offer pure, candid and harmonious moments of relaxation in opposition of monotonous and dissonant frenzy of everyday life.

    The client through the surreal hallway to the entrance of the spa, becomes immediately part of the vanishing and natural atmosphere that defines the space. The client is met with warm and suffused light; the range of shades and colours harmonise together to create an irresistible flow of existence.

    Crossing the threshold, the composition of sounds, shades, images, colours and textural essences wrap the host, supporting relaxation of the senses and rapturing of the mind. Beneficial sensations penetrate into the body and mind, dissolving the daily torpor and intensifying the emotional network.

    The surroundings immerse the spa user in full, in worlds that are built around its movements. The constant flow of the water, with its innate and cathartic purifier, power to shape the environment, models the soft delicacy of the bath and the furniture, which make candid forms; essential is the warm of the sauna and the inebriating vapour of the steam room. The water is reflected in the mirrored surfaces and multiplies in the images of the screens, intensifying its purifying qualities and the process of the visitor being regenerative.
