The Spa at DC Ranch Village

2006 ASID Arizona N. Chapter Award - First Place, Hospitality Cat.


The design of this Day Spa and Salon recreates the bloom of desert wildflowers. Rough limestone mosaic and copper glass tiles make reference to desert rock with a stunning onyx panel resembling an aerial photograph of the desert, all complimenting the bloom of the bright poppy and buttery yellow tones.

The plan flows easily, while also creating distinct areas for different services. The retail display acts a visual separation from the Lobby to the Hair and Manicure areas - offering privacy to clients receiving services. By designing the retail display to float below the ceiling, the spaces feel continuous, and draw attention to the dramatic full height onyx panel. The combination of materials and smart detailing creates a rich yet durable design.
