THE SERPENTINE RESORT - HOW TO ESCAPE THE CITY WITHIN THE CITY?
by Julia Knapek
The aim of the programme is to provide an intimate and holistic experience to visitors. Turning a busy and overcrowded restaurant into a well-being centre by the Serpentine Lake- a bathing retreat dedicated to mind and body relaxation, that will provide Londoners with a chance to step away from the business of the city. The goal of the Serpentine Resort is to improve health and general well-being. Most of the activities will be taking place inside of the existing- Serpentine Bar and Kitchen, as well as in the new extension. This space is going to become an underwater temple dedicated to mind and body relaxation. The key element is water and exclusive rituals; inspired by ancient civilizations bathing traditions. The proposal offers a wide range of retreat spaces that include a journey through sensations across various baths at different temperatures, steam rooms, and shower rooms.
