Hammam haven

Posted on Tue, 8 Apr 2014 by midcenturyjo

“Amara Wellness Centre is unique in Australia for its wellness-based, organic and authentic Hammam bathing facilities and rituals. Directly inspired by the traditional Turkish bath house, the evocative series of consultation, therapy and steam rooms are linked by a series of black oak corridors connecting circular marble-clad chambers. The Hamman ritual spaces feature meticulously crafted domed and vaulted ceilings with custom made copper bathing vessels ensuing that every aspect of the ritual experience is imbued with design.”

My apologies for taking that directly from the interior designers’ site. The mere thought of indulging in the pleasure of such a centre has me relaxed, chilled out, sloth-like with pure pleasure that I couldn’t find my own words. Design by Melbourne based CoLAB, a collaboration between Anna Drummond and Trish Turner.
