When it comes to creating the best possible training and gym environment for your residents there are countless options you can explore. Some say you should keep it simple, others advocate big and bold finishing touches. Whatever your approach; features and finishes shouldn’t be glossed over as they are actually one of the most important aspects of your building design process and contribute hugely to the end user’s experience and residents buying decision.
When you make the decision to include a studio alongside your residential gym there are many things to consider. Zasbi, your consultancy and management experts share how to take your studio to the next level.
There’s currently an increasing trend among studios to create dark nightclub-style workout spaces. With a booming boutique sector and ever-popular exercise to music classes, this décor can really draw your resident’s and potential buyers’ attention.
If you are wanting to avoid the club-like feel as its not innkeeping with your buildings overall brand, instead opt for a more natural or even zen-like aura, remember residents will love it, working out with your natural light. If you have no sources to natural light within your facility, consider investing in lights that replicate this feel.
Flooring does not only allow your exercise area to have specified zones for different types of training; they also allow you to play with your colour schemes and feel of the facility. Flooring now comes in huge varieties of texture, colours and functionality.Your floor can now become another platform for branding. Through personalised flooring, you can add brand prints, text and functional markings that really set your development apart.
Zasbi consult and manage a range of amenities within the residential sector, so we understand how limited space is when designing your building. When we are kitting out your gym and studio, we will keep in mind the flexibility in equipment you require. Partnered with Europe’s top equipment suppliers we have the knowledge and expertise to call on to ensure the space works. Will you have built-in storage spaces, or would you benefit from creating a storage system against the studio wall?
Don’t Forget the Little Details
Your residents will want to be looked after. Make sure you have all the little things nailed as well as the big things. Remember to make water easily accessible and suitable chilled, to provide quality consumables and cleaning products and to make feedback to you as easy for them as possible. Not only will it please your residents- your residents will enjoy working out much more.
