Modern Massage Space 3D Photo Rendering

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was contracted to turn the cold, empty room shown below into a modern massage space.  Beyond the design, this project involved making the space much more functional by breaking it out into 3 separate spaces:

  • Lobby
  • Massage Room
  • Storage Room

There are aesthetic changes of course, but before getting into those, let’s take a look at the “before” space:

With the ceiling tiles, dingy walls and dated carpet and trim, the current space has more of an abandoned office feel than the welcoming, soothing feel that a massage space should have.  But it does have one thing going for it – it’s pretty much a blank slate, and anyone who has ever had to take room measurements knows that a perfectly rectangular box like this is a dream :-).

Based on discussions with the client, who wanted a clean, “bare bones” modern space, I proposed and received approval of this Modern Massage Space Concept Board, then proceeded with the 3D model and photo renderings.  You’ll notice right away a few major changes:

  • I’ve replaced the old carpet with a medium brown, laminate wood flooring which will warm the space, be much more practical for cleanup, and (since installed horizontally) will also widen the space visually.
  • I’ve proposed painting the dated wood trim (and front door) to a crisp white to freshen the space.
  • The walls will be darkened from the existing yellowed white to a calming, neutral tan.
  • And I’ll accent the otherwise neutral palette with liberal doses of spa blue.

Here’s a shot of 1 of the 3 spaces – probably the most important one – the massage room.   For storage, I’ve included both open, upper shelving, and a lower closed cabinet.  Small lamps will provide an option of softer lighting than the overhead fluorescents when needed.  I’ve also darkened the ceiling tiles to help them disappear (did you even notice them?).

In the lobby area, I’ve included a small seating area and another cabinet for additional storage.  A pocket door provides privacy without intruding into either the massage room or lobby.




Lastly, the 3D model shows much more clearly the division into 3 separate spaces.
