Fitness centers are not just about the workout. That’s why the owner of a fitness center in Hail Saudi Arabia came to us to step up the aesthetics of his new ladies’ modern fitness center to create the perfect environment for the physical and mental wellbeing of his customers.
The ladies’ modern fitness center features striking architecture designed by CAS Interior Design.
The lighting used on the white exterior walls, give it a pleasant view at night. And of course, the white exterior will have the least amount of light absorption, perfect for the hot KSA climate. This will, in turn, consume less energy when it comes to cooling the fitness center.
The lobby, designed with modern aspects in mind, acts as a divider between the private and public areas in the fitness center.
The pool windows have been placed high above the ground to prevent outside view into the pool area. Horizontal windows have been placed in line with the pool, giving ladies a view of the outside and also directing natural light into the pool area.
All the windows have been covered with horizontal grilles to allow light in but prevent direct view into the building, according to Islamic standards, so that Arab women can enjoy a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere.
We knew that one of the greatest impacts on visitors was the fitness centers atmosphere and that psychological well-being is closely linked to environmental factors such as light, colors and a relaxing atmosphere. That’s why it was important to create a relaxing, natural environment, which would be as welcoming as possible.
The different areas were carefully considered to make the visitors feel at ease and enjoy the space completely. Quiet areas and relaxation spaces help the ladies socialize which contributes to the wellness and comfort of all visitors.
The ladies restaurant at the top level, overlooking the city, provides a sanctuary away from the bustling city.
The ladies’ modern fitness center is also equipped with a café and a relaxation and recovery zone, where members can unwind using sleep pods, and saunas.
