carolina“Michael Effler is the most brilliant designer I have ever known. He is very passionate about every aspect of each project. The designs he created for two of my med-spas were stunning.

In all of Michael’s spas, the attention to every detail is exceptional. From the finishes, lighting and textures to function, you see and feel the 'wow' factor. Michael is simply the best!”

- Jane Crawford, Owner-developer of the first med-spa in America

The right team...
International Design Concepts was founded in 1984 by Michael Effler, a spa industry leader who has been involved in over 350 projects. Our award-winning design team has accumulated over 130 years of collective experience. Our associates include AIA architects licensed in many states, interior designers, mechanical engineers, large-scale construction planners, CAD specialists, as well as rendering, drafting, modeling and graphics professionals. Many have been with IDC for over 15 years. Along the way we've cultivated an ensemble of highly talented artisans, to provide signature touches.

...with the right values and experience.
IDC's goal is to exceed expectations, and to create positive working relationships. In an industry devoted to highly personalized service, our clients appreciate our dedication to them, tenacity and attention to detail. We go the extra mile to ensure that the final result matches your vision ~ watching over fabrications, contractors and installations. You can be confident, knowing your project is in the hands of an experienced team.

Design integrity is our priority.
Equipment and product manufacturers offer spa design services, but it may not be in your best interest for the design to be dictated by a particular line. As an independent design firm, we believe that spa design and services should drive equipment choices. IDC will evaluate your equipment needs and suggest the most effective — and economical — options from varied sources.

Why hire a spa specialist?
Spa development brings certain design challenges. General architects face a learning curve that could be costly. With over 20 years experience, we fully understand the unique requirements of spas: temperature, air flow, inhalation issues, sound abatement, specialized plumbing and lighting, ergonomics, space planning, and many others. We'll work with local architects and engineers to ensure these needs are met, so you'll avoid the potholes on the road to a successful spa.

Spas are the future...we can help you get there.
Today, we seek healing experiences that combine the physical and spiritual, a place to replenish, rejuvenate and restore our sense of well-being. As in the past, these treatments are becoming an essential element of good health and quality of life. Spas are a catalyst for change at the center of a new awareness, bridging alternative and traditional medicines and embracing international cultures. Now de rigueur in fine hotels and resorts, the future of spas has endless potential for growth.

What is the secret of a successful spa? Be unique. Stand out. Offer new experiences not found anywhere else. Because spas are all that we do, IDC offers expertise that's hard to find in a new, growing industry. Whether it's signature experiences, specialized financing, service menu planning, or assistance with marketing and training, IDC offers unique ideas for successful spas, and the proven ability to get you there.
