Sustainable Renovation / Reprogramming / Hospitality

The expansion and extensive renovation of the award winning Allegria Spa created a cutting-edge guest experience. The 30,000 sq ft Spa offers 23 treatment rooms including three distinct couple’s suites, a fitness center, hair and nail salon and the Aqua Sanitas Water Sanctuary with a co-ed mineral pool, private spaces and deluxe spa locker rooms. A nurturing setting for revitalization, relaxation and renewal, exemplifying refinement in design while demonstrating sustainable strategies.  The fresh, sophisticated design for the renovation of the Spa was inspired by compositions found in nature. Style, grace and comfort are vital elements that emanate through natural woods, refined metals, and the subtlety patterned textiles. Organic textures, indigenous colors and natural forms capture the essential spirit of the interiors evoking peacefulness and soothing luxury at every turn in this award-winning international Spa.  The environmentally friendly transformation contributes to a healthier environment for the Spa’s guests and staff, using natural stones, recycled glass tiles, earthen plaster walls, FSC certified wood flooring, cabinetry and millwork with non-toxic adhesives and finishes, integral colored concrete, natural linoleum floors, extensive re-use of existing doors and furnishings and local artisans commissioned for the artwork portraying aspen groves and organic abstracts.
