World Class是俄罗斯的连锁健身俱乐部品牌，在业内以“奢华”和“高端”著称。2016年，World Class的管理者发起了设计竞赛，旨在为品牌打造最佳新形象。VOX Architects最终凭其独特而现代的设计方案赢得了比赛，为运动者们提供了一个舒适而高效的空间。
«World Class» – the Russian fitness clubs chain, absolute leader of the fitness industry in the “luxury” and “premium” segments. In 2016 the management of «World Class» announced a contest for the best concept of a new image of the whole chain of fitness clubs. VOX Architects won this competition and decided to create a unique modern space with an individual character for comfortable and effective sports.
设计中的一个关键点是要实现不同空间的完美平衡：既要强调瑜伽和普拉提练习厅的舒适性，又要兼顾武术馆的负荷能力，与此同时还要为游泳池打造一个理想的环境。本案是World Class健身俱乐部已建成的第三家连锁店，名为World Class Olympic。游泳池是该店的核心空间。
It was important to achieve the perfect balance between the different areas of the club: to emphasize the ease of the halls for practicing yoga and pilates, to make correct accents in the halls for martial arts and power loads, and, of course, to create an ideal atmosphere in the swimming pool. Fitness club «World Class Olympic» – the third realized club of the chain designed by the studio VOX Architects. The main space of this club is a swimming pool.

▼红色的入口区域和低矮的天花板带来感官上的刺激，the entrance zone with a lowered ceiling – red-saturated – sensual, carnal and material
The project provides for the reconstruction of an already existing pool, so the goal was to implement the project as soon as possible without interrupting the club’s operation for a long time. At the core of the World Class concept is a strong contrast of shapes, materials and colors, giving rise to a powerful dynamic.

▼形状、材料和颜色形成强烈对比，为空间带来充满力量的动态感觉，a strong contrast of shapes, materials and colors gives rise to a powerful dynamic
The pool is divided into two main zones: the entrance zone with a lowered ceiling – red-saturated – sensual, carnal and material and, the main zone of the pool – with raised arches and smooth white forms, flying, weightless standing on a large blue water field. The light concept is determined by the absence of visible and rigidly-directed light sources: interior light is diffuse and full of reflections from large shapes and planes. The project was implemented in two months.

▼室内没有使用可见的直射光源，the light concept is determined by the absence of visible and rigidly-directed light sources
▼宽阔的表面使光线得到充分反射，interior light is diffuse and full of reflections from large shapes and planes
