Project Cost: $240,000
The clients desired a two-story wellness addition to elevate their fitness and well-being. The first floor houses all the state-of-the-art exercise equipment, weights, elliptical, and treadmills. The second floor has a Zen vibe with floors to ceiling wood slats with matching wide plank floors and is used for yoga, dance, and meditation. The entire space is designed to promote health and wellness. The challenges included trenching under the new addition to connect the existing pool lines to the pool, hitting a hard blue stone that could only be removed by hand, and locating specific lines needed for the pool equipment due to state storms.
The design team elected to install seamless wooden slats on the walls and ceilings on the second floor, and during the summer months, the trim carpenters had to pull off the site until AC was installed. The wellness addition went from being an ordinary gym to a spectacular wellness studio, yoga studio, meditation center, and dance studio. The space is not only functional but also beautiful, with design additions and elements that make it feel like a piece of art.
