Arabic Baths – Cadiz, Spain
The original interior design and ambience of these Arabic baths offer an architectural space that looks toward the culture of Al-Andalus. ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño undertook a integral theming project based on the precepts of Arabian architecture.
Some of the principal theming features are the main door to the building, inspired in the door of justice of the Alhambra in Granada, as well as the central dome in the Hammam, made with blocks of oyster stone which are traditional in the Cadiz area. Thixotropic morter is the material used as it permits control of textures and coloration in an artisanal manner during the molding process.
Special care was taken regarding the space, the light, the peaceful background sound, the ambient aromas and the touch of the materials.
