Located in the Sydney suburb of Double Bay, SHELTER is a modern wellness centre that focuses on nourishing both mind and body. Designed by Australian studio Esoteriko, the interiors feature light wood and steel finishings softened by indoor plants and plentiful natural light. Where possible, screens are used instead of walls to offer privacy without compromising openness between the centre’s four areas; gym classes, saunas, ice baths and a juicery. Through its design, SHELTER acts as an embodiment of its philosophy; to encourage a contemporary, holistic and restorative approach to health and fitness.
The team behind Melbourne furniture showroom In Good Company has created an experience that resembles "shopping with a trusted friend". Softer Volumes spoke with Co-Founder and Director, Louise Bastiras, to find out more about the brands they've curated, the atmosphere in the showroom, and the design of the store itself.
