Seeking to reimagine the typology of the typical workout space, Melbourne-based interior design firm We Are Huntly has envisioned the serene look for Prahran’s new wellness spot. Sum Of Us is the brainchild of four wellness practitioners who banded together to form a health and fitness hub that encompasses a forward-thinking service within a relaxed environment.
Located on Prahran’s high street within a double-storey Victorian terrace, the space is a thoughtful balance of functionality and aesthetics. Inside, the design extenuates the building’s existing details, honouring and respecting its inherited shell.
Various holistic treatments are available
Thoughtful details define each area, with the studio’s made-to-measure fittings reflected in a plethora of spaces perfect for a spot of self-refinement, relaxation and reflection. Sum of Us incorporates specially designated areas for pilates, yoga, physiotherapy, myotherapy and podiatry all under one roof, while a café offers up a diverse menu of nourishing dishes.
Aiming to create an atmosphere of sanctuary, We Are Huntly opted for a palette of materials, which would calm its visitors. ‘With the use of light-toned timbers and whitewashed finishes we intended the space to be fresh, honest and approachable,’ explains We Are Huntly director Kylie Dorotic. ‘The essence of the space was to encourage the importance of bringing together a balanced life, mind and body.’
