The design of this luxury fitness facility was developed around the concept of a sculpted canyon inspired by Vancouver’s architectural and natural landscapes. A bold, grand entry and lobby draws patrons in and establishes a strong visual connection between the clubs multiple floors. The grandeur of this central space is sharply contrasted by small, intimate coves throughout that become retreats for social interaction. Across from the prominent, blackened steel stair-core are the member services offices; glass boxes which allow for easy accessibility while maintaining privacy. The fireplace feature wall anchors the ground floor, creating an informal lounge space between the retail and fitness programs. Framed louvers at the storefront continue the importance of visual connectivity and grandeur, while allowing for additional light to penetrate the interior spaces. Rich, neutral materials of stone and wood create subtle texture throughout - returning to the conceptual canyon - while working to programmatically define spaces and guide patrons to main walkways.
