Milsoms Health Spa, Kesgrave Hall

KLH Architects were appointed by Hills Building Group and Milsoms Hotel to design a high quality, luxury Health Spa at their Hotel and Restaurant at Kesgrave Hall near Ipswich. Completed in Spring 2020, the project includes 5 double treatment rooms, sauna, visitor changing and shower provision as well as indoor and outdoor lounge facilities with luxury spa pool. A small café is included to further enhance the experience for hotel guests and day visitors.

The form of the Health Spa was designed with minimum impact on the ground with external areas blending into the grass surroundings. The height of the building is kept to below three metres to give a horizontal emphasis to the form further relating it to the landscape. The timber cladding is predominantly vertical in nature to match the surrounding trees with some panels of horizontal boarding to emphasise significant points on the buildings such as entrances and focal points. The elevations have been enhanced to provide a more dynamic and contemporary style and provide an exciting yet sympathetic architectural response to their surroundings.
