In the context of possible redevelopment of the area, there are plans to realize a thermal bath on the site. An innovative bath concept has therefore been developed in this graduation project. Through preliminary research, the current needs and development of the ENCI area and the wellness sector have been mapped. This information was used for designing an innovative bathhouse concept called ‘The Terrace bath’. This connecting bath building contains a number of distinctive elements, including baths at various levels, a wandering bath route, stimulation of the senses during bathing and a strong connection with the surrounding.
