PART ONE BRIEF _ Design of a building type and spaces having a specific function or use which is related to the sea in an abstract site. It is the 1st part for the next project. _ Site: an abstract site nearby the sea. _ Duration: 1 month from January 2011. CONCEPT _ Two types of bath: the morrocan and the turkish ones. _ The morrocan hammam is composed by 2 very big baths of different temperatures. Usually it is a community space where people meet and talk. It is the reason why there is a big main space with diffuse light for this collective space. _ Subdivisions are minimum in the collective space. _ The moucharabieh facade of the collective space can open to view the landscape. _ The turkish hammam is composed by smaller spaces inside the pods for private functions (steam and massages) and between the pods for rest. _ The privacy is garanteed by the moucharabieh (perforated timber windows). PART TWO BRIEF _ To use and adapt the previous project in the city of Youghal and add a coffee place and staff facilities. _ Site: Youghal, Ireland. _ Duration: 3 months from February 2011. CONCEPT _ The previous design is adapted to the new site: the views are directed to the landscape and the town to create visual links. _ The new functions are added in a new part similar to the previous design. _ A space separates the two parts: on the land side, there are the changing rooms then a small garden. Then there is storage and finally, on the sea side, an external bath facing the landscape.
