The Lens of Bathing: Reo Shima.

Reo Shima’s project proposes to re-invent the way tourists experience their first impressions of the city of Brighton through the rituals of bathing in which the journey through the building reveals a framed view of the seascape and the pier. Situated in Pool Valley, the project is a response to the movement of tourists arriving at the coach station and the way they orientated themselves. The architectural inquiry was driven by the separated spaces of the journey to the view and the journey back, as the ‘shutters’ reveal different spaces between floors to create a dialogue with one another.
