DDI was engaged by MGM Resorts International to provide the planning, interior architecture, and design oftheir recently opened spa, salon, and fitness center atNational Harbor in Maryland, across the Potomac from Washington, DC. The 20,000 square foot, 5-star facility features treatment rooms, dry and wet lounges, and private as well as couple’s services in an intimate setting.The lounges, salon, and fitness center boast spectacular views of our nation’s capital sky line. The planning of the facility allows for easy but separate access for both resort and spa day guests affording a greater sense of privacy and exclusivity. DDI worked closely with MGM and the project architects to create an aspirational spa facility that draws inspiration in its warm palette of finishes and colors from the natural surroundings of the Chesapeake.
The intention was to create a tranquil, timeless, modern space that stripped of unnecessary ornamentation to help guests focus on replenishing their mind, body, and spirit. Our design pairs clean lines with organic shapes and a fresh and subdued but nature inspired palette and material selection. Light public spaces awaken the senses through multi-layered features and finishes joined with private spaces that encourage guests to relax and rejuvenate. The result is a harmonious sensory experience.
