This project reinterprets traditional German graduation towers for incorporation into a public park and wellness retreat in Lampasas, TX. The alignment of the walls creates a rhythmic path from the entry near the public parking to the existing wilderness area on the far side of the park. Privileging the leeward side of the walls, the path captures both natural shade and salt-concentrated air. The overall rhythm of the scheme is reinforced by the topography of the site, which varies the wall height relative to a datum and situates the private wellness retreat low on the land. The density of the walls peaks at the natural spring where the public walking path and private wellness retreat unite. The same spring feeds a series of water channels that thread through the retreat and create a privacy barrier for the guests. Internally, the retreat is connected by a central courtyard garden, inspired in form and feeling by Peter Zumthor’s Serpentine Pavilion.
