The project aimed to portray the know-how of both cultures in a harmonious and unique theme park. The structure thus represents a multifaceted architecture that combines European functionality with the traditional motifs of Asian culture, thanks to the use of Geopietra materials. The Asia SPA Leoben was awarded the " Best Public Spa Wellness Centre in Europe " in 2017

The spring waters of Upper Styria are heated to 34 °C, offering a unique experience and a regenerating journey into the world of relaxation techniques of the Far East. The beach oasis is a refined combination of leisure, wellness, fun and relaxation offers. The impressive structure, majestic for its size, it stretches between pavilions and courtyards with continuous references to the elements of Chinese architecture. The supple charm of the curtains, the lightness of the wooden pagodas, the solemnity of the ancient temples, harmonize perfectly with the green surroundings

Large windows and oriental references

The modern screens, which screen the light from the large windows, are almost in contrast to the lightness of the oriental references, thanks also to the solemnity of the stone that decorates them, with SCAGLIA wall glass from the Geopietra company with the clear and vibrant tones of the earth. The elegant dry laying of the stone, without plaster, leads us to environments adorned with carvings, floral interlacing and winged dragons. Three fundamental components have made this intervention unique and astonishing, namely the union of two cultures, so different and distant and the landscape, which with the large windows fully fits as a third element in the general architecture
