The challenge was to create a commercial space using some of the beautiful Open-Air Cafe models. I chose to make a luxury day spa by the sea, with soft colors throughout and lots of greenery -- all to create a feeling of tranquility for the guests.
The spa has a grand entrance facing the sea, an airy lobby, 2 VIP spa suites, a couple's suite, a sauna, a pool area, bathrooms, and a small self-serve kitchen for refreshments. All of the suites have private balconies.
