For most of us, pursuing a healthy lifestyle isn’t a fad; it’s an investment in the future. But even if you’re prepared to put in the work, it can be hard to find the time and the space – let alone the energy to turn an intention into a habit. If you have a diary packed with professional commitments, it’s often difficult to schedule a regular slot to visit the gym, pool or spa. This is why our clients are looking to include designated spaces for exercise and relaxation into their homes.

Spaces like luxury home gyms provide much more than the obvious health benefits. In a world where we are expected to constantly be engaged, it is vital to create room for mindfulness and reflection. Creating spaces that will set you up for success is our passion, and we take pride in uniting the aesthetics and functionality of your gym to make sure it is tailored to your needs.

You don’t need acres of space for a gym, but you do need to engage in a careful and thorough planning process to ensure you get the results you desire. We’ve led a number of gym build projects ranging from the creation of a multi-purpose workout room to a fully equipped pro studio, swimming pool and spa retreat, and can guide you to your own bespoke solution.

A basement workout

A basement extension can make the ideal space for an exercise suite. We are currently undertaking an extensive project for a client in St John’s Wood who wanted to create a sports complex at basement level with areas for relaxing and entertaining. The limitations of the site location meant building outward or upward was not feasible, so our basement solution worked perfectly. Not only did the new space significantly increase the living area within the house without increasing it’s external footprint, but it also improved the flow between rooms and floors for more flexible family living.

The new basement now houses a fully kitted sports complex with sauna, lounge area and a bar in addition to a guest bedroom and en-suite, plus playroom and cinema. A brilliant facility for family activities.

An elevated space for exercise and reflection

An Oxford-based client asked us to transform two small cramped units into one beautiful studio spaces into a luxury gym for the family. The character of the former brewery building’s will shine through with our thoughtfully planned renovation. The gym will reflect the building’s heritage, with exposed coffered ceilings showcasing its origins and allowing in plenty of natural light. The arrangement of professional gym equipment has been planned out so that a central space for free movement, yoga and Tai Chi is always available. A must for recharging the batteries.

A luxury fit-out that marries an elegant aesthetic with practicality will define this generous space, providing opportunities for the family to explore strength and wellness together.

Repurposing heritage buildings

A neglected building can make an ideal location for your new gym – if it repurposes a redundant space, bringing it back into use with low environmental impact, all the better. A recent project has seen our team helping to convert a collection of stables into a large, open plan gym. The building’s floors, walls and ceilings required insulation, while AV equipment, mirrors and professional equipment were installed using eco friendly, low-toxin materials and zero VOC paints. The finish is light and contemporary glazed French doors fill in the openings to the old stable doors which are tied back to maintain the original aesthetic of the beautiful building.

It’s an incredible transformation that has given an old, disused space a new lease of life.
