Appreciation towards 32mq design studio for providing the following description:

项目位于Royal Tunbridge Wells市中心一栋18世纪的新乔治亚式剧院中,原剧院是二级历史保护建筑,设计师需要对其中的三层进行改造。

This project is for the conversion of three floors of a Neo-georgian former Opera House, a 18th century Grade II listed building, in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells.

32mq’s architectural approach reflects the building’s history and establishes a unique identity for the new studio, mixing new and old elements. Challenging with the constraints of a limited budget, the character of the historic architecture sets the tone, whilst a palette of grey tones of new additions complements the richly texture of the found surfaces.

The first floor is the main workspace, whilst the second floor provides for private clinic rooms. At the ground floor, the new design for the entrance turns this area into an active street frontage. Stripped back and partially demolished walls and ceilings have been left raw as a theatrical backdrop to the mental and physical well-being benefits of pilates. The wallpaper was half removed, electrical and mechanical ducts left exposed. In contrast to the rough walls and ceilings, the flooring stands out thanks to the smooth reflective finish providing a sense of material continuity and rhythm throughout the rooms.
