Spa uses physics of heat to eliminate doors, permitting 24 hour access. The heat and personal space required for each program organizes the spa experience for users. Within the spa are also third spaces that create a space for socializing and interacting outside of the home and workplace regardless of weather or time of day. The spa programs add much needed spa and publicly accessible programs to the site, 6th Avenue and Vandam, NYC.
