The Third Space
40,000 sqft of holistic health and sports related fitness club, housed within an existing hotel annexe in the heart of Soho and spread across five floors including a large basement.
The £6M interior fit-out was completed in 12 months, and has received numerous accolades from the press, corporate bodies and the members and professionals who train there.
The fitness club comprises: ozone Swimming pool and Spa, Climbing wall, three dedicated fitness zones, Pilates studio, Boxing ring, Hypoxic altitude chamber, complimentary medicine and in-house GP.
The entire concept was to create a space where everyone would become part of the experience and enjoyment of this dynamic building. The volume is created without the need for corridors or solid walls, and the client was keen to create a unique and vibrant identity.
