This project aims to convert 33 Sir John’s Rogerson’s Quay from an office space into a wellness centre. This project is aimed at individuals who feel the need to reconnect with themselves and nature, take a break from city life, and aid in improving their mental health. This is a place where people can truly relax and heal, away from everyday triggers. Stressful and busy lifestyles, especially in cities like Dublin, can result in excessive stress, anxiety, mental health issues and negative coping mechanisms. A wellness centre would be of great benefit in this area.
The design concept was inspired by the river Liffey and water reflection. The use of curves and organic forms throughout the building allows the users to have a unique experience and reconnect with nature. The wellness centre includes a café, skincare boutique, gym, spa, yoga studios, meditation pods, therapy rooms, library, and an art studio.
