‘Experience the fine art of relaxation’


Having worked alongside international spa consultants ESPA, key members of the studio completed the design & construction of a purpose built 25,000 sq feet Spa, occupying six levels within Latvia’s capital, Riga.   As part of a development by Linstow AS and Reval Hotels, ESPA Riga has become a landmark within the Baltic region.

A dedication to detail ensures that first impressions are breath-taking and everlasting.  The considered selection of rich, natural materials demonstrates a respect for the past, whilst the use of a subtle colour palette, complements the very best in cutting edge spa design.


‘Entering ESPA Riga is like stepping into Riga’s ambitious future. Creating this spa has been an incredibly exciting project for us. The unique design incorporates a dedication to detail which ensures first impressions are breath taking and ever-lasting.

We worked closely with the team on the design; inspired by ‘Fire and Water, the spa includes a spiral staircase in black and gold tiles with a glass balustrade which encases ‘Morgen Tau’ the hand-made crystal sculpture designed by Eva Menz: just one of many stunning features that flow throughout the six floors of the spa.’
