Court Hydro, Southport
eight suite member's only spa hotel is emblematic of the dragonfly in
its design. The wing structure of the dragonfly has influenced the
sensuous curves of the roof shape over the swimming pool and aerobics
areas. The tranquillity of a spa is continued into the highly organised
serene garden based on Japanese design principles. Inside the building,
the eight luxurious suites and the hotel rooms benefit from heating
provided by ground source heat pumps.
This scheme uses high quality copper,
glass, steel and stone in its construction
and will produce a totally contemporary building which is virtually hidden in the landscape and by so doing enables the original merchant's house to retain its visual dominance and integrity.
