The Millennium Gym

Antares Place, Rosedale

The interior brief was for a fun, innovative and cutting-edge gym (along with working from a functional plan perspective) that invigorates and promotes energy, health, life and movement in an uplifting and innovative space. The existing gym was housed in the existing Millennium Building. The new gym was mostly housed in a new part of the building with around quarter of the floor plan residing in the existing Millennium building.

The design solution focused on:

Reception and change rooms

Interior colours

Reflective surfaces

Gym Floor

New gym equipment

The reception provides the busy hub to the gym and is positioned in the centre where visual surveillance can be maintained over the entry to the change rooms, consult rooms and two entries to the gym floor. The gym wraps around the central reception hub and moves through to the upper gym floor with personal trainer’s mezzanine.

The upper gym floor was situated in part of the existing Millennium building so had to be staged at a later time than the rest of the gym. This meant that the gym had to open six months before the upper gym floor could be opened resulting in the gym feeling slightly cramped for a while. Space was generally tight for the brief, so efficient planning and the use of many screens and filmed glazing instead of solid walls allowed wide views throughout the gym, which enhanced the feeling of space.
