House of Rituals opened its first Body and Mind Spa, occupying 2600 sq ft, on the top floors of its existing Amsterdam location. The Body Spa’s open treatment areas are luxurious with the use of stone, natural timbers, lounge chairs and large plants.

Treatment rooms are situated in a separate and more private area. The world’s first Mind Spa, a concept developed for Rituals to broaden the well-being experience, features a variety of treatments intended to induce the deep relaxation of mind, body, and soul. From a design and planning perspective, the in-house Rituals team created an area of simple, yet stylish elegance conceived to produce a sense of serenity, rest and harmony.

The judges were united in their appreciation for the use of technology, materials, and creative space plan.

This project received an Innovation Award for Brand Activation.
