Household designs Cornish spa

Household has created the interior and exterior designs for a new ‘active relaxation’ spa at Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall.

The consultancy was appointed to the project last year on the strength of its work for Shoreditch House, and says it aimed to ‘challenge the traditional way of thinking’ in spa design.

Household, which worked alongside architect Stride Treglown, says it has moved away from typically ‘formal, hushed, clinical and sterile’ spas and moved towards a more warm and ‘lived-in’ space.

The spa features an infinity pool encased in glass, as well as timber-decked terraces and a wooden boardwalk taking visitors straight down to the beach.

Sarah Page, creative director at Household, says, ‘We’ve thought carefully about all the customer touchpoints, not just the core facilities, but the important spaces in-between.

‘Watergate Bay Hotel is about family friendly year-round relaxed beach living, there are no rules, just the way it should be. It’s perfectly imperfect.’

The new spa is set to open on 21st June.
