The functions of these pavillions (in plan) orient themselves to their adjacent seasonal solstice: hot spa to the summer solstice, cold spa to the winter: Roofs are sloped at optimum angles to accomodate for the amount of energy required to maintain comfort levels in respective area: Cold Program roofs orient to summer sun to gather as much energy as possible to cool, Hot Program to winter solstice as they would need be in an over abundance of energy. With integration of highly insulated walls, glazing and sustainable site strategies, SPA(s) is a series of high energy conservators and low energy consumers.
