Melt Design Hub is an international design consultancy specialising in wellness and hospitality design for destination spa resorts, wellness communities, retail health villages, spas and independent wellness clubs.
Formed by Jean-Paul Blissett (formerly CEO of Syntax UK) and Asif Iqbal, in 2012. The duo combines 30 years of high-quality wellness experience with market leading design innovation. The award-winning practice works in masterplanning, architecture and interiors.

Main products and services
• Market research and feasibility
• Concept and brand creation
• Interior design
• Architecture
• Masterplanning
• Thermal planning
• WELL building design
Our work is informed by the principles of “people-centred design”, believing the user’s experience should be at the heart of every project in producing contemporary design sensitive to the local culture and context.
We collaborate with investors, developers and operators to stimulate dialogue, solutions and innovation, allowing us to translate an idea into a project that excels on commercial, experiential and operational levels.
Our projects deliver value and profits to our clients over the long term. Our track record spans back to Champneys in 1985 and includes Chiva-Som, One Spa and Y-Spa. It is these projects’ longevity and continued commercial success that exemplifies our work.

Melt specialises in bringing concepts and wellness brands to market. This starts with an understanding of the business plan and target markets; we work closely with investors and operators to forge a strategy and provide a coordinated architectural, technical and interior design service. This extends to opening and also to collaborating with other architects and consultants as needed.
Our broad experience and understanding of the wellness sector give us informed opinions on the industry, as well as insights into future trends as thought leaders.
Melt’s operational and technical expertise sets us apart – making it work is fundamental. We’ve led the world in the design and production of thermal areas, creating the first rooftop hydro-pool and the first on a cruise ship, for example.

Top clients
We work with independent wellness operators, product brands and hotel groups. Examples include the Avira Wellness Community in Malaysia, the Gazelli ‘spa’ in London, and Cloud Twelve, a new cross-generational health and lifestyle club in London. All these set new benchmarks in wellness.

Where in the world?
We work globally: Europe, Middle East, India, Asia, China and the Caribbean

Future plans
We’re bringing original concepts to market, including a state-of-the-art Bio-Hacking retail brand, wellness villages embedded in retail complexes and a bespoke health optimisation model for the corporate market.
