From the architect. Bliss Spa is a company with a very strong identity. The challenge the design team faced was to create a unique 3-story spa that evoked regional influences from the Miami area while still maintaining the overall aesthetic of a heavily branded organization. The design team was influenced by Miami’s famed architect, Morris Lapidus, and the “Miami Modern” style that was so influential during the 1950’s development of South Beach.

Similar language exhibited in the design for the TWA terminal, Miami’s Lincoln Road shade structures, and the original Fountainbleu Hotel, can be seen throughout the spa. A vibrant finish palette of blues and greens taken from the colors of the Atlantic Ocean and the lush Miami landscape creates a harmonious contrast against the stark white design of the “Mimo” elements.
