The architecture of the Lake Constance Thermal Spa captures the eye-catching elements of its surroundings, water and expanse as well as the sailing boats being the guiding images and the inspiration behind the design of the complex. The sauna wings symbolize hulls of ships protruding into the lake. The spacious bathing hall is characterized by the view across the lake with its varied moods of light and weather. It can be experienced from different levels. Spiral staircases form coloured cylinders that create striking sculptural highlights in the interior. The trapezoidal steel roof opens out to the edges of the bathing hall, floating above it like a sail that a surfer has laid gently onto the water.
