water sanctuary

This spa captures the intimate relationship between natural water and the people of Berlin.

While spending 3 months in Berlin I realized that the connection people have with water is like no other city.

Water runs through Berlin the same way it runs through are body and people are constantly spending time around the spree river. Health in the city is expressed through a constant need for nature.

through the regenerative properties of water ​Blue Berlin finds calm and happiness with life and the moment mentally, physically and within you.

experience

made for you mental, inner, and physical body. this space will heal you from stress and the hectic nature of the city.

The facade is a complete separation of the city stress and the water healing & relaxation.

mental

All 3 programs on this side of the sanctuary are dedicated to the healing properties that water has for clearing you mind. We have connections with water that are instinctual and based on evolution.

The seeing and hearing space connects you to your "blue mind" and puts you in a state of meditation.

The float tanks relax you through the connection of floating in your mothers womb.

Being wet is also about drying & sunlight. This is simulated in the drying area and can aid those suffering from seasonal affective disorder.

physical

The programs on this side of the space focus on physical therapy and how water can help with pain, circulation, and movement.

Contrasting heat and icy water is extremely beneficial for circulation which is what the contrast baths do for you. Dunk into a cold one, then a warm one next to it.

The infusion bubble uses naturally infused steam to relax any soreness in the muscles and release pain.

The movement pools circulate and work as gentle massages for your body entire body allowing you to reach full comfort and relaxation.
