Columns Can Be An Opportunity To Create Seating And A Space For Plants

Architecture firm mecanismo has completed the Akelarre Boutique Hotel and Spa in Donosti, Spain, and included in the design of the spa, are planters that incorporate structural columns.

The columns in this spa have been wrapped in wood slats, softening the look of them, and helping them become a part of the built-in planters.

The planters, which help guide the flow of people around the spa, have a wood slat exterior, and a border that lies on top of the frame.
