Sheppard Robson completes spa at Battersea Power Station development
25th October 2017
Sheppard Robson and ID:SR have recently completed a luxury gym and spa located on the Battersea Power Station development. The 1000 m2 space sits below the first phase of the wider development, Circus West, and includes a swimming pool, gym, treatment rooms, wellness suites as well as a relaxation area.
The concept for the design envisages the large 20m-long, three-lane swimming pool as the sparkling ‘jewel’ at the heart of the project, with a range of spaces nestled around this. Different zones within the gym have been carefully configured to promote a feeling of openness, with vistas through the spaces helping orientate guests, whilst making the most of the natural light. In the circulation areas that are more confined, lighting installations have been used to animate these spaces and improve orientation.
Sophie Campbell, Associate Partner at Sheppard Robson, said: “Located at the heart of a bustling and thriving development, the spaces will create a tranquil environment that promotes reflection, relaxation and fitness.
“The aim of the design was to create a facility that surpasses the expectations for a residential gym, with the spaces – through the materials, services and spatial planning – having a more boutique feel akin to a private, independent gym.”
