Photography by Jessica Miller.

Firm: Mariotti Studio


Project: Citywell, Brooklyn, New York

Standout: Because of the spa’s tiny footprint, allowing only for reception, showers, and changing and steam rooms, freestanding saunas occupy the garden, 
the profile of the cedar-
clad volumes inspired by luxury railcars of 19th-century Europe.

Firm: Intoex

Project: Toxnfill, Seoul, South Korea

Standout: Marble, porcelain tile, dramatic pinspot fixtures, and an arching structure tempering the 14-foot ceiling surround patients of the dermatology clinic specializing in Botox and fillers with subtle opulence.

Firms: Rai Pinto Studio and Arauna Studio

Project: Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona, Spain

Standout: Continuing the studios’ vibrant animal theme installed earlier in other wings of the children’s medical center, here they—specifically seagulls, pelicans, and flamingos—extend onto ceilings, as most patients coming through are on stretchers, looking up.

Firm: Best Practice Architecture


Project: Workout, Seattle


Standout: The firm 
exercised both its 
interiors and brand-
ing departments in 
combining an office 
tower’s multiple 
retail storefronts 
into one dynamic 
gym highlighted by 
energetic herringbone detailing and neon graphics.
