The building ensemble of the "Roman Baths," which was adapted into Lenné's landscaped park, is very near Charlottenhof Palace. Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Ludwig Persius had already delivered the first plans in 1826, while the architects were connected with the building of Charlottenhof Palace. Crown Prince Frederick William (IV) accompanied the design process with an abundance of his own drawings. Although the realization of the baths began in 1829, the ensemble took more than a decade to complete. A pergola connects the Court Gardener's House, built in the style of 15th century Italian country houses, to a pavilion in the shape of a Greek temple upon a podium. An open arcaded hall on the other side precedes a building that was modeled upon a Roman villa. Among its other attributes, it houses a bathing room, from which the entire complex takes its name. The asymmetrical concept contributed to the arrangement of small, open spaces, which were designed as gardens or resting areas.
