When thinking of rustic English towns, you’ll be hard-pressed not to conjure up images of charming independent shops, quaint tearooms and attractive old-world architecture. Stamford in Lincolnshire certainly ticks the boxes. However, shaking up its high street is RÖ Skin’s new skincare Treatment Rooms.
RÖ Skin has been providing heartfelt, cutting-edge skincare to its clients for almost a decade. The brand’s second outpost – located on the historic St. Mary’s Hill – is a haven of modern wellness, translating its dedication to attentive, personal beauty consultation and therapy, through its minimalist design.
The new space was designed by London-based practice O’Sullivan Skoufoglou Architects, who looked to the layout and design of traditional apothecaries in the space’s conceptualisation. The light-filled entrance, framed by large street-facing windows, leads guests to the cluster of private rooms at the reverse of the space. A soft ambience immerses guests in RÖ Skin’s wellness wonders, perpetuated by a modest palette of birch plywood, linen and painted dado.
An expansive menu features traditional massage, facial and waxing treatments, however the standout services are the more contemporary inclusions. Cutting-edge offerings include the innovative Bioslimming Body Wrap, which firms and sculpts the body, whilst Venus Skin tightening utilises radio frequencies to improve skin elasticity.
Those keen to relieve stress and anxiety can take to holistic therapies, including traditional Japanese reiki healing or reflexology, which targets stress-induced ailments through providing pressure to areas of the feet.
