PORCELANOSA Grupo projects: Fitness life in The Yards, Washington D.C.
Friday October 9th, 2015 · PORCELANOSA Grupo
Conceiving a space where socialising and sharing everyday experiences, beyond the habitual concept of gym, turned out to be the main goal of Vida Fitness at The Yards (Washington D.C.) when having their architecture and interior design project completed.
In order to make real this ambitious exclusive design project of the renowned gym chain, Stoneking & Von Storch Architects and Hallock Design Group trusted in the design, quality and reliability of PORCELANOSA Grupo materials, which are ideal for places of a high demand and transit.
Among the PORCELANOSA Grupo materials used in this modern avant-garde project, it is worth highlighting the use of Urbatek porcelain tiles in various spaces with high transit, above all, in its extra-slim format. Hence, XLight extra-slim porcelain tile by Urbatek is present in some areas of the building, such as the reception desk, where Nox Corten slimline porcelain tile has been used to have its counter tiled, whereas XLight Concrete Grey tiles the outside of the lift which gives access to the higher floors. Also by Urbatek, we can find Neo Black, the flooring used in the beauty salon, as well as the wall tile used on the specific wall, whose porcelain tile is Town Cosmos.
Porcelanosa Grupo mineral compact, in other words, KRION® Solid Surface, also plays an important role in this gym chain project. Standing out because of its ultra-white appearance, high resistance and durability, as well as its easy-to-clean properties, this cutting-edge material tiles the reception counter, to be precise, in its KRION® Lux 1100 Snow White version. It is also in this extra-white version where KRION® dominates the bar counter, thanks to its stain resistant properties.
In the search to be unique thanks to its innovation regarding interior design, Vida Fitness located in Washington D.C. also has exclusive wall tiles, such as Porcelanosa Sea Silver metal effect wall tile , which is present at the entrance of the spa, as well as Porcelanosa Glass Antracita, again present in this gym chain bar.
In approximately 30.000 square feet of living space, Vida Fitness centre located in Washington provides its clients with a wide assorted offer of services, ranging from fitness, yoga, pilates, spinning or zumba clases to areas with cardio and toning machines, as well as steam room, sauna, spa and even an entertainment and relax area. Thus, the Vida Fitness centre brings together a commitment with functionality and usability in every single space, by means of a very sophisticated and neat interior design. The innovative gym also includes beauty sessions in the beauty salon, a bar and a restaurant, making its members’ everyday lives easier.
