Azure Magazine features Liepaja Thermal Bath by Steven Christensen

Our design for the Liepaja Thermal Bath is featured on the cover of the July/August issue of AZURE Magazine (along with 3 other projects; we're happy to share!). Read the article about our project on page 80. 

"American architect Steven Christensen accepted the challenge of taking the dome form to unprecedented heights . . . The pièce de résistance is the third-floor outdoor pool suspended in a hemisphere with a glassed-in view of the surroundings. This antechamber embodies the entire plan's visionary audacity."
