American International Innovative Design Award 2024

Gentle Iron Fitness Club

How to create a difference in daily life, how to break the norm and create the future, and how to ignite sparks in people’s hearts with design and innovation are the common cognition and pursuit of designers and homeowners. But on this basis, it is crucial to maintain independent thinking and judgment – we who are no longer in the past, living every second in the present and connecting to the best future.

The gym is a group of young people engaged in the fitness industry who want to achieve their dreams and establish it. The owners are young, energetic, and have been in the industry for many years. Therefore, when they finally were able to open their dream gym, the owners enthusiastically approached our designer and told us their ideas. Finally, the designer reorganized their spatial layout, lifestyle habits/needs, and style preferences to create this black and white “fitness park”.

The gym is located on the second and third floors of a commercial co built building, covering an area of approximately 800 square meters. The owners plan to turn the second floor into a fitness area, and the third floor into a yoga and fitness area, both open and closed, with offices and cafes on the side.

The second floor is the core area of the entire gym, where customers usually come to exercise. The light gray concrete, black metal, and some wood veneer details define a series of horizontal and vertical spaces. The load-bearing columns of the building and the intersecting pipes in the sky create a square sports field, with all fitness equipment distributed around it. The mirror surface that is flush with the line of sight and the grid like bridge covering the walls and columns bring a strong metallic and reflective feeling to the entire space.

On the third floor, there is a physical examination, yoga, and other body building areas. The attic like environment gives the entire environment a retro aesthetic, with transparent glass separating the various areas, creating a fusion of vision and spatial separation. The algae water tank adds a touch of greenery to the entire space, adding a lot of lively atmosphere. The water pattern lamp facing the staircase adds a water element to the entire space, echoing the opposite side. The sparkling water ripples soften the entire space, giving it a sense of Zen.

The coffee shop downstairs follows an industrial style that blends the two, with black, white, and gray intertwined. The metallic reflection and the soft wood finish complement each other, making the coffee shop less cold and more warm. The designer cleverly utilized terrain factors to combine the coffee shop front desk with the stairs, while the metal wall panels in the dining area gave the coffee shop more possibilities in a flexible and creative way.

The remaining space on the wing is planned as an office, which also follows a black and white gray industrial style. The large cabinets provide a calm and atmospheric style for the space, serving the coaches and staff of the gym. Therefore, the overall decoration is simple and decorative.

The design of the gym promotes the innovative concept of a fitness center as a cultural and lifestyle center. It is not only a place for exercise, but also a platform focused on community development, increasing knowledge and self-awareness, enhancing happiness, and promoting personal growth.
