The fifth Adriana Natcheva building that I chose to write about is the Calmia Shop and Spa in London. The first picture shows the unfinished interior, while the second picture shows the way the interior looks when it is completed. I really like the use of rectangular prism shapes inside. The rectangular prisms are randomly placed and sized so that they look artistic, but they are organized enough to serve a useful purpose. I also like that the bulk of the interior lighting is placed away from the window, so that it does not interfere with the effect of the natural light in the front. However, I do not like the finished building as much as I like it unfinished. The colors used to stain and decorate the interior are all very dark, which I do not think goes well with the natural light coming in the front. Although the colors may be fitting for the spa application, I would much prefer this interior decorated in lighter colors, such as pale blues, greens, and yellows.
