Steamroom

Alto Paraiso de Goias, Chapada dos Veadeiros, Brasil, 2009

Architectural Project

Inspired by Barbapappa and the many stories of aliens spotted in Chapada dos Veadeiros and together with a constructor experienced in dome structures we created this bubble shaped steam room. Steam can be created by heating the water from the river nearby with a woodfire or with gas. The first bubble accommodates a shower, the second is the actual steamroom. Windows were created using old yellow glass dinner plates and crystals found in the earth below were placed on the roof.
