Appreciations towards Estúdio AMATAM for providing the following description:


The challenge of this project and the main goal was to design a gym to look as unique as possible while keeping a low budget and still a stylish appearance. By responding imaginatively to the task, we tried to use modest materials in new ways resulting in a space with an industrial look yet luxurious in some details.

The reception area and the circulation is lit by vertical industrial light fittings framed by distended metal sheet, taking advantage of the ceiling height, which add a distinct underground atmosphere whilst complimenting the overall gym design. All materials are low budget solutions but applied in a distinctive way. Using mainly a color scheme from gray to black and different material textures we managed to give more or less roughness to the space feeling.

功能上,设计师需要在 290 平方米的空间内布置所有的功能区以适应健身房的需求。健身房分为两个部分,每个工作室都需要承载一项基本的功能:体能训练空间被分为几个单独的训练室;阶梯式下降的工作室中配有多媒体设施,主要负责动感单车的训练。此外,更衣室、前台和休息室定义了其他的空间。

Functionally we were constrained to develop a layout within 290m² in an existing retail space to accommodate a dual studio fitness concept. In each studio there is one essential activity: functional training divided into several training stations in a single room (Panic Room), and a studio for Spinning classes (Stress Room) with an amphitheater disposition, with loud music and flashy images. Moreover, the changing rooms, a sales corner and a lounge area define the other areas.

▼橡胶地面具有防冲击功能和良好的吸音效果,floor covering recycled rubber tire grain with impact absorption capacity and noise reduction ability


In terms of materials, all the walls were built in concrete blocks, most of the time left uncovered, while for the floor covering recycled rubber tire grain was the option for the Panic Room, because of its impact absorption capacity and noise reduction ability, while in the rest of the areas concrete was poured in the floor.

To emphasize the reception, the lounge and the dressing rooms entrance, glossy square tiles were used enhancing the contrast between the surrounding materials.

在动感单车训练室中,教室前后都设计有巨大的电子屏幕,保证教练和学院可以同时看到放映的内容。整个空间采用全黑的色调,其中 RGB 的 LED 灯带给教室带来了更多的活力,强调了空间感。

In the Stress Room a double inverted amphitheater was designed to allow the instructor and the XL screen to be seen by the gym-goers. The space was all painted in black, while the RGB led tape changes the mood of the studio and highlights the space shape.
