From the first gym to the second to the third, learnings and experiences were rolled over to make the next gym even more dynamic and even more exciting.
To begin the project, a site visit was conducted to understand the space as well as get a good understanding of Everlast’s requirements. Once we had a good understanding of the design brief, we were able to sit down as a team and discuss potential approaches and products that would be suitable. We worked closely with the Everlast team to understand their vision. From this, we were able to create a concept document which was presented to the Everlast team to get feedback.
Within our concept, we utilised a wide range of the Signify brand offering. From a luminaire’s perspective, we utilised various luminaire brands (Tailored Creations, Modular, Philips) which allowed us to be creative in various spaces whilst delivering on Everlast’s sustainability goals (Tailored Creations). Introducing controls into our concept allowed flexibility and dynamic lighting. The Colour Kinetics brand provided the game-changing side of our design.
From creating a concept design, we were able to move into the preliminary designs, creating and developing ideas to provide dynamic ideas for differing areas of the gym these included, weights, studios, cardio etc. Once the preliminary designs were finalised with the Everlast team we progressed to detailed designs and from this, the designs were brought to life.
A critical element of this project has been understanding the product offering and ensuring that our lighting design enhances these, our personal favourites include adding dynamic RGBW lighting in the spin studios and ‘Boxfit’ areas. Another area that we really think helps to capture the end user’s visions were the KeyLine squares located above the squat racks.
We gained a complete understanding of the process from start to finish which aided us in the following gyms.
