Not Your Father’s Altered State
When a pioneering new business wanted a space that offers complete isolation from the sensory world, JENSEN Architects created a futuristic, minimalist retreat for next-level meditation.
Next Generation Spa
First developed in the 1950s and later sensationalized in the 1980 thriller Altered States, sensory deprivation tanks have gained a new following as a mind-opening, body-healing therapy. In Silicon Valley, Jensen helped entrepreneurs reimagine floating as a 21st century healing experience: minimal, beautiful and completely free of the world’s distractions. From the moment one enters this custom designed building, a subdued sensuality sets the tone, obscuring the meticulous engineering behind the carefully crafted experience, where sensory stimuli like light and sound are painstakingly curated.
