Global online architecture platform Architizer has spotlighted innovative spa and wellness architecture concepts around the world as part of its 11th Annual Architizer A+Awards.

Founded on the premise of democratising architecture, the annual A+Awards honour the best buildings and spaces from across the globe.

The 2023 awards were split into 119 categories including a Spa and Wellness subsection which awards the best overall architecture dedicated to psychological and physical wellbeing.

After reviewing an unprecedented number of submissions, Architizier narrowed the finalists down to seven wellness destinations. Two grand winners were then selected as overall winners by a Jury and the public respectively.

The winners are as follows:

Jury Winner
Xi An Club (Yunnan, China) – gad.

Popular Choice Winner
Hub of Huts (South Tyrol, Italy) – Network of Architects (NOA).

Finalists
Quintas (Cuernavaca, Mexico) – Archetonic.
AE.R Skinlab (Vancouver, Canada) – Leckie Studio Architecture + Design.
Senyu Spa – Hangzhou Materialise Design Office.

Special Mention
Soul Realm Spa House (Hangzhou, China) – Atelier Right Hub.
SIG Resort (Xiamen, China)– Xiamen Sform Design Consultant.

The complete list of winners can be found at Architizier’s official website. In collaboration with Material Bank, Architizer will celebrate winners at a live reception at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, in Paris, in October.

“I was incredibly impressed with the quality of work this year – the level of creativity, innovation, and attention to detail demonstrated was truly inspiring,” said Amar Al Assam, CEO of Dewan Architects + Engineers.

For 2023, the awards programme welcomed 11 new categories focused on sustainable design. This decision was taken to emphasise the pivotal role designers have in confronting climate change and to shine a spotlight on those architects striving to improve the built environment for generations to come.

“These awards are an opportunity to share meaningful, change-making innovations, so we can continue to make even better projects for our planet and our community,” added Michael Green, founder and principal, of MGA | Michael Green Architecture.
