ORA
by Rockwell Group

Phoebe Cheong

Rockwell Group has designed a wellness space in New York, featuring a marble reception counter and an open lounge that doubles as a tearoom.

After being diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes at age 11 and struggling with health-related issues throughout the years, Kimberly Ross found great relief in acupuncture after receiving treatment from Gabriel Sher – now ORA's Director of Acupuncture.

The concept of ORA was conceived during Kimberly's time at Harvard Business School, in an attempt to make acupuncture more approachable to others experiencing health issues.

Located in New York's East Village, the first ORA combines the traditional techniques of ancient Chinese medicine with a modern, convenient experience at an accessible price-point.


This project has been longlisted in the leisure and wellness interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
