LE NUOVE THERMAE

Project by:

Dylan Fromm, Jediel Ponnudurai & Yixing Liu

STUDIO Y

Located in an abandoned marble quarry in the small town of Roselle, Le Nuove Thermae utilizes the innate qualities of the land and quarry to drive its design resulting in a scheme that abides with the geometric alignments of the site. As such, a grandiose structure is born, both carving into the marble and building out from it. Its monumentality represents the project’s importance as a cultural site for both the local people and visiting tourists, generated by a transcendental experience made for through the unique employment of materiality and light resulting in a modern rendition of a traditional bath.

These four sectional axonometric diagrams each depict one of four important spaces located within the project; the central circulation/reception space, hot baths, mixed baths, and the private baths. Furthermore, they are meant to distinguish between spaces that are carved into the marble compared to the exposed constructed elements.

Furthermore, they are meant to distinguish between spaces that are carved into the marble compared to the exposed constructed elements.

Shown above are perspectives that visualize important spaces within the project when occupied. The spaces shown in order; major bathing exterior, mixed baths, stairwell exterior, hot baths, underground dome with oculus, and leisure space with swimming pool.
