Thermal spa architecture: 10 must-see projects

Eskisehir has a rich and stratified historical background, and the Odunpazari region, in particular, has great tourist potential with its intact historical structure. The project was strongly influenced and inspired by Eskisehir's thermal water resources, and is therefore a modern interpretation of Odunpazari's vernacular architecture and existing historical structure. The complex includes a spa and wellness centre in the centre, and residential units on the perimeter. The construction also touches on aspects of sustainable design using wind and solar energy, and geothermal energy, used not only in spas, but also for space heating during the cold seasons, through a system of geothermal heat pumps.
