A prestigious international prize states the poetic beauty and the architectural value of “Tiberio's Baths” in Panticosa (Spain), the new health and wellbeing centre in the heart of the Spanish Pyrenees made entirely using special glass blocks with a trapezoidal section.

Among the most suggestive buildings on the international scene, the project assumes the shape of a glass casket, housing within itself thermal swimming pools, saunas, personalized treatment rooms, a café, a small gymnasium and other environments associated with wellbeing and the functions of the Spa, following each other in succession in a discontinuous space rich in foreshortened views and breathtaking perspectives. p>Last December 3, 2009 during a magnificent celebration at the Solomon R.Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the project won the first prize for the “Spa Fitness” category of Best of Year Awards 2009, promoted by the influential American magazine Interior Design recognizing superior interior design projects and products.
A jury of design luminaries and Interior Design editor in chief Cindy Allen consigned the prize to its architects, Belén Moneo and Jeff Brock, proprietors of the eponymous studio founded in New York in 1993, which is now based in Madrid.
An award to the project which prizes Seves glassblock, the only company in the world that is highly specialized in the production of glass blocks, which, by virtue of its experience, has succeeded in rendering flexible those production processes associated with the world of glass, traditionally characterized by considerable rigidity, thus making itself capable of grasping and giving form to the creativity of architects and interior designers.
