WG+P (Waind Gohil + Potter Architects) have transformed a former storage space to create their second gym for boutique operator Core Collective.
The pay as you go site in Knightsbridge, London offers clients a variety of group, instructor led sessions including TRX, HIIT, Power Yoga and Spinning.
The Knightsbridge site offers a yoga and TRX studio as well as a 1,100sq ft space for high intensity classes. The design developed in collaboration with lighting designer Stileman lighting using lighting effects with a variety of materials including timber, steel, concrete and brass to enhance the social and workout experience in the gym, which is as much to do with wellbeing as activity.
The workout spaces are reflective of current lifestyle, fitness and nutrition trends giving gym goers a progressive yet relaxed atmosphere with curated and flexible spaces allowing for classes that can easily be tailored according to instructor, intensity and level. The result is a sociable destination that supports a healthy lifestyle within an inclusive yet bespoke environment.
“As millennials socialise at the gym, rather than at the bar, and exercise is becoming widely understood as routinely necessary to survive the metropolis, fitness spaces are taking on a new social and physical importance contributing to our wellness,” says Phil Waind, director with Waind Gohil+ Potter.
