Building on our successful 4-year relationship with Caudalie, Mapos was asked to conceptualize L’appartement Caudalie on Madison, Caudalie’s first standalone concept spa in the U.S. Tucked into a tiny footprint on the 4th floor of a landmarked building, the program includes 4 dedicated treatment rooms, a reception area, a living room lounge, and all related back-of-house program necessary for the spa to run smoothly.
The design challenge was to accommodate the demanding program elements without compromising the beautiful natural light streaming in from 4 street-facing windows, and to leverage the existing elements of the space that made it so uniquely New York, like exposed brick walls and the fireplace. By strategically pulling all of the treatment rooms away from the windows, we were able to achieve a naturally lit gallery and living room lounge visible immediately as one enters the space. The result is a space that feels light and airy in spite of its highly compact container.
