Program

Two floor fit-out of a high end club for new brand to fit within an existing office building.

Challenge

Convert an existing 2-story office space into a the first of a new brand of exciting, high end fitness clubs catering to young professionals of Boston’s Financial District.

Solution

PCA worked with Healthworks Fitness to introduce a modern new fitness brand into an existing 1980s office building. Inserting a gym on two floors of an occupied building posed multiple design challenges including wayfinding, acoustic, and vertical access issues.
A colorful staircase seamlessly connects reception and the locker rooms with fitness areas above. On the ceiling, bright yellow panels provide visual cues that guide patrons through the open space. The pops of color, combined with industrial finishes and rustic reclaimed wood, support Republic Fitness call to “Join the Revolution”, creating an exciting new venue ideal for young, urban professionals.
