THE FITNESS SUITE AT 600 LEX
LOCATION: NEW YORK, NY
SIZE: 3,000 SF
Designed as an upscale building amenity, the new Fitness Suite at 600 Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan will offer a state-of the art gym, yoga studio with barre and spa-like locker rooms to its tenants. Envisioned as a retreat from busy city life and inspired by nature, the new gym aspires to motivate with a drastic change of scenery from the regular day at the office. The luxurious, sophisticated finishes throughout the space provide an immersive environment of serenity and sensuality. Tobin Parnes dedicated goal for this project was to create an oasis of wellness for all senses.
The large gym comes to vibrant life with a giant 12ft high birch forest mural, spanning the entire width of the space, and living green walls that double function as both a design element and indoor air neutralizer. Round, over-sized LED pendants throughout make a bold visual statement and offer generous, even illumination throughout. There is also a smaller, adjacent gym space, which is perfectly suited for yoga, barre and individual work-outs. Light parquet flooring, textured wall finishes and unique wall luminaires create an inspirational, but at the same time a soothing and relaxing space for exercise and mindfulness.
