The Fiorina Spa spreads over 700 square meters and includes a reception area, luxurious showers and lavatories, nine double treatment rooms, a hammam, dry sauna, Jacuzzi, outdoor pool and a lobby for rest and relaxation.


The challenge facing Meron Architects was to create a connection between wild nature and the orderly volcano. With column beams opening into the building and wide displays overlooking the Hidden Valley. The system creates a rhythm and a reminder of the nature that penetrates moderately and elegantly into the structure. The greenhouse was built as a closed space, a kind of gray, dark cave built of volcanic stone. Covering the walls with a dark mosaic is set with glittering stones, creating a sparkle in the cave, connecting well with the flowing water. At the entrance to the Turkish sauna  was placed an ice sink, specially designed basalt stone and produces a contrast of black and white, hot – cold In order


 To overcome the functional difficulty resulting from the fact that the original structure did not have the height and volume that provided all the water and electricity systems needed for the spa and public buildings in general, the ceiling was covered with sheets of a material called "Brisol", and overhead lighting fixtures were installed, The spa floor is made of natural wood, as are most of the materials used in the building, and in the bathrooms and changing rooms the material language changes and is covered with white textures with a wavy texture for a sense of cleanliness and purity, with a flow rate The water merges with The comprehensive nature larva space
