This small spa resort was built in June 2014 on behalf of a resort with mineral springs “i-resort hot spring” in Viet Nam. “The Tent” is characterized by a spectacular roof construction, which gives an atmosphere of openness. The highlight is definitely the mineral water swimming pool, embedded in the ground and with shimmering, turquoise water. The tent is a remarkable project by a21studio.
The tent provides accommodation and protection from the Vietnamese heat. The mini-spa resort is perched on the slope of a hill above the town of Nha Trang city. The alignment to the adjacent River provides amazing panoramic views over the city centre and the peaceful area. The tent provides a retreat, pure relaxation, isolated from the outside world, but also promoting more physical activity.
The tent is built under the dark shadows of a steep thatched roof, its sensational roof construction made of wood is essentially supported by the rock. The steep roof prevent the penetration of sunlight into the plant and protect them from contamination and excessive warming by sunlight. The eaves of the roof and parts of the canopy are carefully positioned so that you can enjoy beautiful views.
Mainly local materials were used – dry stacked stone, palm leaves, reinforcing steel for the construction. Different tiles in different colours give the plant an organic look. The tent is 126 square metres in size and is distributed on two floors: the upper floor accommodates two private bedrooms, surrounded by wooden frames and colored glazing. Аuf the ground floor extends to the mineral water swimming pool up to the edge of the area. The effect of light falling through the stained glass window gives different strong colors on the recycled furniture inside.
