Your Own Nature
From time immemorial, humans have harnessed the earth’s energy for the sensual pleasures of bathing. Your Own Nature evokes the spirit of a natural hot spring in a downtown Austin midrise. The project proposes a series of private bathing capsules clad in translucent Corian to be inserted into an existing hotel building. Each capsule is ﬁlled with performative artiﬁcial stones that provide soothing warmth and create sensorial microclimates.
