About us
Sparcstudio is a privately-owned creative design practice of designers and architects that has carved a reputation for designing highly creative, successful and award winning spas, wellness/ fitness and hotel and resort facilities.
Projects tend to be for independent owner / operators and within the high-end sectors. Sparcstudio offers a bespoke and comprehensive design service with a real attention to detail; logical and inspiring space planning forms the bedrock of their schemes. Sparcstudio always looks to create a unique product that has a real sense of place. Dramatic lighting design is always a key / integral element of Sparcstudio design.

Key markets
Health & fitness, hotels & hospitality, spa & wellness, high-end retirement villages. We work in the UK and Central and Eastern Europe. We are happy to work on projects that are further afield where we can provide a concept design/ consultancy service working with local enabling architects on the delivery.

USP
Sparcstudio delivers beautiful, quality and impactful design work that attracts much press coverage. Their design approach is driven by a deep understanding of what guests need and the desire to create an amazing journey and experience for them. Sparcstudio schemes have real “heart and soul”.
