Estate Yountville completes spa redesign helmed by HBA

The Estate Yountville, a 22-acre luxury property comprised of Hotel Villagio and Vintage House located in California’s wine country, unveiled the redesign of its spa.

The Spa at The Estate is now one of the largest in the Napa Valley area with seven treatment rooms and five spa suites. Hospitality interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) worked with two of the firm’s subdivisions, Illuminate lighting design and Canvas art consultants, as well as with SB Architects for the redesign.

The design team created a unique aesthetic for the spa, consistent with the goals set for property-wide redesign. The renovation of the spa transformed the existing interior spaces with design elements reminiscent of the Napa Valley surroundings. Key elements of this vision include an interpretation of the valley’s agrarian architecture, and a connection to the town of Yountville including its indigenous landscape. An emphasis was placed on creating transparency between rooms and drawing natural light into the space.

The reception area was opened up to form a great room, echoing Tuscan villa design. Painted white, the double-height space has abundant light and volume. The interiors emphasize simplicity.

The private suites have natural-colored furniture to add contrast to the darker wood and warm leather touches used throughout the spa. Each suite has indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a lounge area, steam showers, sauna and outdoor soaking baths. Cream-colored stone walls fit into Napa Valley’s natural surroundings and reflect the natural light present in the space. Additional light comes from wall accents and large-scale light fixtures.
