Collected Bathhouse Designs

Posted in bathhouses and jjimjilbang reviews, Uncategorized by 노강호 on May 29, 2011

(Originally published in September 2010) A collection of bathhouse designs that can be used for contrasting design and facility. Some plans are being added to and they are not to scale – they are very rudimentary but will give those with no knowledge of bathhouses an idea of their layout, approximate dimensions and the amenities available. Click plans for establishment reviews.

    What an excellent collection. Information that the normal foreigner (if there is such a thing) has no idea about.

      Hopefully, I will get to replace some of these with original photos – not the type of places you can freely wander with a camera!

    This is a work of genius!

    I know what you mean re: photography – I’ve often wanted to document the design of certain bathhouses – but having said that, it is quite pleasing to have at least one camera free sanctuary in Korea.

      Thanks for your supportive comments. I’m glad someone finds bathhouse designs worthy of recording.
