Xtend Barre London

The brief was to design a 3,000sqft fitness studio - the first European flagship of the American company Xtend Barre. Classes are based on a dynamic fusion of Pilates and dance elements, ballet in particular. The client wished to transform what was initially a dingy, halogen lit basement into a welcoming and calming space that would lend itself to practical and comfortable use. With this in mind, the reception and changing room areas in particular were to have a welcoming and domestic feel.
