Woman-Owned Wellness Studio Incorporates Minimal Yet Punchy Art + Design
How A New Self-Care Destination Pivots In The Time Of COVID-19
Before & After
A part of the front low ceiling section is used as the reception area, lounge, and retail space. With all the walls, ceiling, and built-ins all painted in GWS’s brand color: mint green. The simple yet visually strong setting welcome the guests, indicating that they have stepped into a different space, and help them to relax.
Beyond the mint green space, there are four treatment rooms. Two of them have low ceilings and the other two are located under the high ceilings. The design for this space is intended to take advantage of the natural light from the courtyard area and to form a connection with nature and help customers to “dissolve” physically and mentally. To provide a waiting area, a series of low benches with planter boxes are placed along the corridor outside of the treatment rooms. All the planter boxes are facing the doors of treatment rooms. Together with the wood slat screen and ceilings, they define the entry to the treatment rooms and provide a sense of privacy.
Walking through this flowing space full of plants and natural lights, the guests arrive at the two story yoga-meditation space, which the surrounding floor to ceiling windows bring an abundance of natural light.
