Holism Retreat by Studio Tate
▲ Studio Tate’s design for Holism Retreat interprets the transformative process of the wellness experience as a journey from rough-cut texture to polished gem. The spa, located at Mgallery by Sofitel, Hotel Chadstone in Melbourne, offers customers a sanctuary and encompasses treatment rooms, an LED light therapy room, a yoga studio and guest amenities. Arched thresholds and curved walls create a strong formal rhythm as customers move through the spa. Muted hues and the textures of pink granite and brass accents complement this refined formal expression. Soft recessed lighting and concealed joinery ensure the skilfully composed space is both calming and restorative.
