Gym Design

Smithfield Gym

Project Type: Design & Project Manage
Location: Dublin 7
Description: Gym

We were given a brief from Lift Gym to create an inspiring space in the new Smithfield building that reflected their brand values and would feel welcoming for the largely female client base. As battle ropes are a tool of the gym, we decided to use rope in a creative way across the design. We created a window feature made from rope, enabling light to filter through from outside but maintaining the privacy of gym users inside. We also cut a rope / resin design into the birch ply flooring and repeated this effect on the back wall. The owner asked for an image of a strong female to inspire the largely female client base so we commissioned artist Darren Blagburn to create an artistic image of Serena Williams, which he then echoed in other areas of the interior.
