This report presents the proposal for a Spa complex made of modules for Capo Murro di Porco, Italy. The considered site is a south-eastern tip of mainland Sicily. It is a part of the Municipality of Syracuse and borders to the north the Gulfo di Noto. The place is dominated by a military lighthouse.
The report consist of a theoretical section followed by the design part. They both tied together seek to find a solution to create the architectural piece that follows the rules of tectonic and minimalism. First part of the report contain the theoretical research on terms: tectonic, minimalism, beauty and atmosphere. It is finalized as a conclusion, further translated into design parameters, which are implemented in a project proposal for a Spa complex. Second part shows elements straightly connected with the design. Firstly, the analysis of the site, together with the conclusions, furthermore, useful
analysis and information are gathered, for instance, spa design principles, Mediterranean architecture characteristic, technical aims. As a next step, final overview of the new design is presented. Finally, the design process is unfolded. Additionally, in the annex, calculations and technical aims can be found.
The architectural concept is based on using repetitive modules, combined in bigger clusters, and furthermore gathered together as a whole complex. In the design process, inspiration were taken from Jørn Utzon, who had a faith in the potentials of serial production. Additionally, modularity provides
to the building a further possibility to expansion in case of needs. The design focused on making the most of an valuable location and proximity to the sea. The units are put together in order to create an overview characteristic to the Mediterranean village.
