Our team is fortunate to be working in the “wellness design” business!
After an intense summer, our group needed to re-charge, so we decided to test-drive our latest project, Airem-Modern Beauty Rituals in Syosset, NY designed for Dr. Eunice Park, a celebrated plastic surgeon.
We spoke with Juliet Cavallaro — experience coordinator — who suggested beginning with a collective “tea ceremony” and then breaking-off for individual customized treatments.
Just minutes from the bustle of Manhattan and Brooklyn via ferry, QC NY, a 74,000 sq ft Italian day resort is set to debut this September on New York’s picturesque Governors Island. The project is a $50m investment and required seven years of planning, building, and restoration.
Robert Henry Architects has been working with QC Terme on the project, designed to bring the brand’s signature Milan wellness experience to the US.
A majestic magnolia tree anchors the corner of our property, which is located between a hospital and a local subway station, where hundreds pass daily. We invited our community to write a message, their dreams, wishes, or a prayer on a strand of ribbon and then tie that message to the tree and let the birds deliver their message to the Cosmos and Heaven.
A single tree transformed thousands of lives in our Brooklyn Community – HOW? – It provided hope and healing during the global pandemic. This video captures that experience:
Many thanks to collaborators Nancy Wu, Jean Davis, Leah & Naomi Rosenthal, Vivienne & Colette Watts, Bob Henry, and Ivo Stainoff whose words, artistry, and passion made the “prayer tree” possible.
Dedicated to Chloe Henry and her friends.
This healthy home is located in the Hotel des Artistes on 67th Street in Manhattan, just steps away from Central Park West.
My wife Nancy and I are both Architects and we are constantly designing wellness into our own homes. It has since become our ‘signature style’ featuring:
- ● abundant natural light,
- ● natural ventilation,
- ● HEPA air filtration,
- ● acoustic mitigation,
- ● spa bedroom suite, and
- ● biophilia integration.
Historically, many architects have experimented on their own homes, pushing boundaries, or testing new ideas that set the stage for their career. 20 years ago, my wife Nancy and I set out to design our loft accommodating our newborn son Bo. The 800sf space located within the Hotel des Artistes on Central Park West is where we incorporated the maximum natural daylight and ventilation possible. We added biophilia, designed dual-use spaces, and incorporated a home office, thereby integrating early “wellness practices.” This toolbox of healthy-home criteria soon developed into our signature design style.
