viva day spa II

Sq. Ft.: 2,900 / Austin, Texas


Client: Viva Day Spa, Inc.

The owners of Viva Day Spa desired for their encore location a first-class day spa that could deliver the finest services for the mind, body and spirit in an environment that was warm, relaxing and – above all – unpretentious.

The spa, designed in a new 6 story multi-use condominium building in Central Austin, was designed and permitted through the City of Austin in 4-5 weeks. This expedited process met the client’s need for occupancy in a tenant finish out scenario. The architect’s design provided new interior space planning for massage, aesthetician, manicure/pedicure, reception area and support services. The design maximizes the client’s need for atmosphere with safety and privacy, ADA compliancy, construction cost and energy conservation.
