Taking cues from a centuries-old spa in Budapest, the Omorovicza Mayfair Institute offers massage and beauty treatments against a backdrop of clay and terracotta.
The 2,000 sq ft Mayfair spa is Omorovicza’s first dedicated outpost in London and seeks to channel some of the architecture and atmosphere of the Ottoman-era Rác Thermal Bath – which was built by ancestors of the brand’s founder.
Edward John Milton Studio and Tina Vaia designed the space, using predominantly natural materials, left purposefully raw to reflect the mineral-infused ingredients used by the spa. Subtle signs of history abound, including a stone sink carved with an Omorovicza family sigil and cast iron lighting referencing the ancient candelabras of the Rác Thermal Bath.
Stone, copper, and wood are heavily featured, with herringbone flooring adding texture to the retail space and two treatment rooms – where guests can try Hungarian facial massage alongside hydrotherapy and mineral-rich mud.
