Health Resort Design
Designing and building a retreat centre extends beyond a typical resort plan and there are many specialised aspects worth considering. The use of materials that embrace the natural elements of the environment, a space that encourages a deeper connection, a design that has a 'sense of place' and a project that intelligently considers feng shui and other philosophies are just a few. Then there are various expansions upon a typical resort that may include a holistic spa centre, consultation rooms, counselling offices, a fitness studio, movement spaces and other specialised areas for meditation, ceremonies and rituals. Our consultancy combines our collective knowledge of retreats with our ecologically aware design team, to bring your vision to life. We can offer support and project management through all aspects of the pre-opening as detailed in our strategic approach above.
