The new Luxe gym opens its doors at 12pm today. Luxe fitness is a new gym & wellness centre located in a Grade II Listed former library in Bristol. The ambition of the project was to provide Bristol with a new gym experience in the unique setting of a listed building. The original building ran over two floors, to make use of these large volumes three new mezzanines were added re-imagining the building as a sequence of spaces for exercising. These mezzanine structures were sensitively inserted into the historic structure adding 1,300 sq.ft to the floor area.
The original Edwardian terrazzo, parquet and maple strip flooring was repaired and exposed providing a practical yet authentic finish. Other period features such as the picture & dado rails, cornicing, windows, the staircase & proscenium arch were restored and celebrated with a fresh colour scheme. These natural and high-quality materials contrast with the utilitarian finishes normally found in big box gyms.
Within first two-weeks of opening the gym had reached over half of its target membership. Take a look at this short film of this great facility:
