Baghdad Spa


Baghdad, Iraq


Ministry of Youth and Sport

Project Size:

7,000 sqm



AMBS won the international competition for the Baghdad Spa situated in the Ministry of Youth and Sport City.

The Spa will provide a tranquil recreational space to relax and enjoy its’ restorative benefits. Two central pools are sunk to the ground level, overlooked by two smaller pools at a mezzanine level.

The view out is directed towards the natural lake. The five concrete finished walls are over-sailed by a roof structure formed from louver-like beams and skylights, which create an ambient play of light and shadow.

Along with aquatic amenities, the Spa includes two restaurants and a coffee shop. The design is a beautiful and modern construction at the vanguard of engineering that expresses refined Iraqi culture.
