PUMP gyms fit into the ‘ smart cost’ cat­e­gory. The chal­lenge was to cre­ate spa­ces with ar­chi­tec­tural qual­ity in­vest­ing in de­sign and modern feel, keep­ing con­stant the premise of find­ing more eco­nomic ways to do so. The orig­i­nal de­sign/ con­cept was fully de­vel­oped by the ar­chi­tects.

The gyms’ iden­tity is strength­ened by the in­tu­itive, func­tional and sim­ple way of or­ga­niz­ing the space lay­out. The new gym has two lev­els, the ground level, with a dou­ble height space, op­er­ates as the re­cep­tion area in di­rect con­tact with the street and the up­per level for most of the ac­tiv­ity ar­eas. The el­e­ment of con­nec­tion— the stairs— be­comes the main ac­tor of this space, re­veal­ing the young and dar­ing iden­tity and the dy­nam­ics of the ac­tiv­ity of a gym.

The colour palette used is neu­tral, to al­low the calm needed to ac­com­mo­date all the vis­ual noise in­her­ent in a gym’s equip­ment and users cloth­ing. Strong colours are used only to high­light cer­tain el­e­ments of the ar­chi­tec­ture or to stand- out cer­tain fur­ni­ture el­e­ments.

The re­cep­tion desk is in­spired by the move­ment and pace, through the mis­match of hor­i­zon­tal planes. Each piece is unique and the ar­chi­tects par­tic­i­pate in its con­struc­tion in- situ defin­ing the po­si­tion­ing of the var­i­ous plans. The colour cho­sen is white, en­hanc­ing its for­mal ap­pear­ance.
