The Voyeuristic Wall - Y+ Yoga and Wellness Centre

Y+ Yoga and Wellness Center is a 1,200 sqm extension of the original Y+ Yoga Studio concept. It contains three yoga rooms, massage rooms, meditation rooms, social gathering spaces, a small café, and a retail area.

Neri&Hu’s design explores the abstract concept of tranquility by creating intimate spaces that allow for self-reflection and communal spaces for human encounters. These include rooms to cool down, read, chat, and for meeting new people. The main yoga room is a slightly elevated half-circular room in an abstracted forest, represented by vertically hung ropes. Bronze gaze holes, placed strategically throughout the studio, function as focal points during yoga practice.
