Crafting an At-home Wellness Haven


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the definition of self-care has evolved. No longer confined to mere sustenance and daily routines, caring for yourself and your family now extends to mental health and mindfulness within the home environment.

This paradigm shift prompted one homeowner’s desire to create an outdoor haven; a sanctuary where physical and mental wellbeing could thrive. Studio Anqet embarked on a transformative journey to design a landscape that seamlessly blends modern amenities with the nurturing embrace of nature.

Rooted in a profound connection to water, the design journey began. Recognising water’s fundamental role in human existence and its symbiotic relationship with the environment, the designers delved into the essence of biophilic design. They considered the fusion of water, greenery, fire and manmade structures, envisioning a landscape where harmony reigns supreme.

The resulting design is a testament to this, featuring a myriad of elements aimed at enhancing both physical and mental wellbeing. From a rejuvenating spa building with a Himalayan salt wall to a serene outdoor dining area nestled amidst lush greenery, every aspect of the landscape exudes tranquillity and rejuvenation.

Attention to detail was paramount throughout the project. Lighting, meticulously curated to accentuate the natural beauty of the surroundings, bathes the landscape in a gentle glow. Architectural elements, such as openable glazing and removable pillars, seamlessly integrate the building with the natural landscape, blurring the boundaries between indoors and outdoors.

A focal point of the design is the water feature, a mesmerising display of honed quartz that comes to life with the gentle flow of water. This captivating feature not only adds auditory serenity but also serves as a tactile delight, changing its appearance with the touch of water.

The outdoor hot tub, equipped with various massagers, offers a holistic experience for relaxation and rejuvenation. Designed to target specific points of tension, it epitomises the marriage of luxury and wellness.

In crafting this wellness haven, Studio Anqet has redefined the concept of home. Beyond mere shelter, it is now a sanctuary where physical and mental wellbeing intertwine with the rhythms of nature. Through meticulous design and thoughtful consideration, the landscape emerges as a testament to the transformative power of biophilic design in nurturing the human spirit.
