Upper East Side Fitness Center
New York City, NY
The design of this upper eastside fitness center, with its aerobics area, weight room, yoga studio, and spa and steam room facilities, embodies the spirit of urban sophistication and innovation. A dynamic and enticing environment was created by combining an innovative lighting scheme with the flowing layout of the studio spaces. On the fitness floor, backlit mirrors and custom etched glass walls were used to define and expand the sense of space and activity. At the ceiling level, existing concrete beams were encased with light coves which define and highlight their irregular pattern creating a unique geometric pattern of light above the workout areas.
Rich yet durable materials further enhance the unique qualities of the space. Backlit mirrors float in front of reflective white Xorel wallcovering in the aerobics area giving a sense of openness and light throughout while mosaic split face stone walls provide key focal points. A custom design wall covering was used in the yoga studio and the pattern was inverted and etched onto the glass wall separating it from the aerobic studio. Space, light and materials are woven together seamlessly to create a richly inviting and satisfying experience.
