The communal area is used for manicures and pedicures, while private rooms at the back of the spa are used for facial and massage therapies.

The following text is from Saitowitz:

The project is a day spa in Mission Bay district of San Francisco, in an 1800 square feet bare concrete-space,

Mizu is water, which Mizu Spa embodies. The atmosphere is a tranquil stream. At the center is a river of rock, around which the communal therapy barge floats in space.

The walls are draped in shimmering mesh creating light and fluid edges. The horizontal surfaces of floor and ceiling are black. Everything else is pure and white.

Mizu Spa is a place for pampering, rejuvinating and transforming. Treatments include facials, massage and nails.

The central object is a prosthetic throne to sit on. Soft pads pamper the body. Arms rest, hands support, feet soak, and the provider glides around on stools.

Behind the communal therapy area are private rooms for facials and massage. In the bathroom, below the sinks, rocks again appear as water. Mizu is about beauty.
