THE STORY AND THE SOLUTION
The space is rented, that's why we have not arranged apocalyptic replanning.
We made a "cake" with an existing baking dish
Our client Elena felt "how it should be", but in fragments. We had to form from her preferences and needs the holistic picture.
We decided that the interior would speak in the language of racy Asia.
The style is minimalist, but with a spicy taste.
The interior is on the basis of the warm color palette, wood and natural fabrics.
We did not reinvent the wheel in the decoration of the walls and chose a simple decorative plaster.
A special place in the interior is for things: antique doors, lamps, crockery, figurines. They are the subject of pride, because the owner has gathered them in different corners of the globe.
At 200 sq.m. we combined Sri Lanka, Bali, Thailand, India.
The interior items added not only saturation, but also kind of the personal significance.
The spa is designed for the small number of visitors. There is a VIP-room for four and two massaging rooms.
In Thailand (the place we took inspiration from) residents have the cult of guests. So everyone crossing the threshold of the spa becomes the king.
The interior design had to to pick up this idea. Using the balance of lines, materials and textures we filled the space with a Zen mood. The inner feeling – you are relaxing on an exotic island while the Thai people are massaging you.
The balance of natural elements, materials and textures
Harmony in the details. From decorative wooden blocks on the wall and flower pots in the form of coconuts to up-braided chairs in a soft milky color.
The relax area with a hammock is the place where waiting for a massage becomes a pleasure.
Ethno-tiles on the wall are the legacy from the previous interior. Too distinctive to be destroyed.
