The Bathhouse

The bathhouse was a large building located in the Ancient City. It was constructed mainly of sandstone, and doubled as a railway station.


The building was a perfect square, located above the crossing of two railroad tracks. To accommodate the tracks, a cross-shaped tunnel was incorporated into the first two or so floors. In each of the resulting quadrants, the basement housed a boiler room, accessible from the street. From the street, other entrances gave way to stairs leading up to large pools. There was one large pool in every quadrant, open to the sky. From there, staircases led to a cross-shaped superstructure ontop of the railroad tunnels. This cross held a staircase in an atrium in the middle, leading to a few floors of lounges and balconies.
