Entry DescriptionGym Town is a deluxe gym studio located in Central HK designed for fitness enthusiasts. The lighting team collaborated with M.R Studio to create a bespoke lighting solution for the 8,000 sqft facility that creates an opulent sense of exclusivity and wellbeing.
Both aesthetics and practicality were thoughtfully fused by seamlessly integrating the lighting scheme into an interior design scheme which reflects the planet Mars as creative inspiration. The signature tangerine palette of the walls and miniature ceiling downlights complement the intricate decorative light fixtures to echo the Martian themes.
Effective use of lighting finishes, light intensity and unique flourishes delineate zones and enable intuitive customer wayfinding from high intensity workout zones to rest, recovery and refreshment areas.
The barrisol ceiling in the reception constructs a space filled with futurism, which is offset against the feature wall accentuated by the light trough. Enhanced by lighting design, these two key elements strengthen the interior design theme and create inviting atmosphere.
Integrated seamlessly with the light trough, high-power wall washer light sheds illumination on the feature walls, illustrating the Mars surface and increasing the feeling of spaciousness of the gym area. All fitness equipment is lined with track light fixtures that bypass glare to optimise use experience.
Sustainability ApproachCundall's Zero Carbon Design 30 (ZCD30) goal is dedicated to achieving net zero carbon across all projects by 2030. We collaborated with Gym Town to align our design approach with their ESG goals. The ESG goals and Web 3.0 application incorporated into their new operating model are commendable steps toward promoting sustainable practices and leveraging emerging technologies.
Our lighting design prioritises sustainability and efficiency. We incorporated the principle of modularity in selecting lighting fixtures and implemented a wireless Bluetooth dimming system to reduce material requirements. The fixtures ensure only necessary elements need replacing during future maintenance, and the dimming system eliminates the need for extensive wiring works.. These sustainable solutions enhance energy efficiency, minimise carbon footprint, and promote circular economy.
