SPA ROUGE, ROMEO HOTEL
Naples, Italy / 2008
Rouge SPA occupies the eighth floor of the Romeo hotel in Naples, a luxury accommodation designed by the Japanese firm Tange Associates. The design concept of the SPA plays on the contrast between fire and water, an ancient dichotomy in perfect harmony with the opposition sea/volcano that characterizes this multifaceted geographical area.
SPA Rouge is made up of four treatment rooms, a panoramic terrace, a hydrotherapy pool and a sunbathing area overlooking the gulf, a hammam and a fitness area. The walls and the floor of the SPA are covered with large slabs of light stone, where fascinating colour plays are projected. The wellness centre can be entered through two elevators that, thanks to suggestive visual and sound projections, predispose the visitors to the emotional experience that awaits them.
