The Warehouse Gym

LOCATION: DUBAI, UAE
USE: COMMERCIAL - SPORTS
SCOPE: INTERNAL LIGHTING DESIGN
YEAR: 2012 

The concept behind the design of this gym was to recreate the gritty feel of the gyms of the '80s. Raw materials, exposed structures and huge graffiti by renowned artists Tom Deams and Shaun Sper take us back to the New York underground grungy world.

Light has a key role in this projects, both as wayfinding aid and as visual stimulation. Bright saturated colors categorize the different training areas and provide an energetic and entertaining atmosphere for workout. The use of marked contrasts adds drama to the scene and enhances the feel of mystery and anonymity.

The lighting elements used complement the raw ambiance. Pink and blue neon lights guide males and females to their respective changing rooms, while industrial projectors reveal the graffiti on the walls, spreading their colors in the space. The achieved atmosphere is surreal, energetic and inspiring.
