Massage Envy is the leading provider of massage therapy in the country offering many forms of therapeutic massage. This Owner/Franchisee currently operates several Massage Envy locations in the Twin Cities and continues to grow the business.
Although each individual location adheres to the strict design criteria set by the franchisor to achieve the Massage Envy brand standards, emphasis is on designing each clinic for functionality and convenience, as well as ensuring that those design standards are met.
A typical clinic features approximately a dozen therapy rooms, in addition to a spacious reception and waiting area and other support rooms.
Special care is required to ensure that all spaces provide easy flow and accessibility, while maintaining a high degree of privacy. Natural woods and stone enhance the “spa” aesthetic and reinforce the mantra that massage “restores balance for all the things that life throws our way.”
The project work for this client included several remodels for various sized projects. The project scope varied from small exterior display/storage projects. The project scope varied from small exterior display/storage facilities to a complete remodeling of a 70,000 square foot existing retail space. Scheduling the work between peek retailing periods and controlling cost were among the most pressing issues for this big box retailer.
Each building addition needed to meet a specific retailing criteria for each client, yet adapted to the unique site conditions of its location, in terms of orientation and aesthetics. In each case, we were able to design a building addition that was complimentary to the original building without compromising the unique sales floor requirements of the retailer. Finished materials on both the interior and exterior of the building reflect the nature of this retailer’s product offering. Natural stone and heavy log framing accent the otherwise vanilla box.
