Holland Harvey are currently working on the second location for the boutique gym brand Gymnasium.
Due to open in Spring 2021 the brief is to provide specialist workout spaces for 500 members facilitating their three major programmes; ‘Compete’, ‘Stronger’ and ‘Atheletica’ alongside key community spaces, changing and breakout warm up zones.
The design of the building originates from the brands core beliefs that community is at the heart of health and well-being. Spaces are located to encourage conversation and interaction to foster stronger relationship building between gym members. Opening up spaces so that gym goers mingle and spark conversation, cross paths and encourage new connections drives many of the key decisions.
Beyond providing the key technical requirements of each of the programmes, the spaces are then finished to create a warm and friendly back drop to the core workout activities.
