WHAT WE DO
Design for Leisure (DFL) is a team of hydrothermal spa specialists working in partnership with owners, operators, architects and designers to bring European-inspired hydrotherapy concepts to life. Our expertise in building best-in-class wet areas ranges from small but luxurious residential thermal suites to the acclaimed Canyon Ranch hydrothermal circuit at the Venetian Resort (Las Vegas, NV), considered the largest day spa in the U.S.
We work with a client's design team to refine existing plans to ensure first-class thermal experiences are created.
We create technical drawings that ensure everything fits into the space. CGI renderings allow the client to visualize the space.
Refining the schematic design, we prepare detailed floor plans and sectional elevations.
We confirm all performance specifications and equipment requirements needed to implement the spa design.
Thank you for being so professional and passionate and I look forward to continuing our successful collaboration!

WHY PARTNER WITH US?
Build it right the first time.
Without the technical knowledge of a hydrothermal specialist during the planning and design stages of your spa, it’s easy to make common mistakes that will ultimately cost the project both time and money. Enter Design for Leisure.
Working in collaboration with clients, we are able to make every unique spa vision a reality—all while ensuring the plans meet all technical requirements, building codes and regulations required when building for environments that are subject to extreme heat and water.
