Luxury fitness club in the heart of the City of London
Located within the buzzing City of London, Equinox Bishopsgate’s interiors have been designed by Woods Bagot in collaboration with the Equinox Design Team to deliver a holistic lifestyle hub across five levels. Members can find fitness programming, luxury amenities and refined aesthetics that reflect the brand’s high-end ethos.
Talk to Peter O’Donnell about Retail
Equinox Bishopsgate is the company’s largest location in the UK, giving the designers the opportunity to provide a creative array of settings which include a tech-enabled cycling classes, enclosed spaces for hot yoga classes, and bespoke spas to recharge.
A unique, light-filled façade comprised of black metal and glass partitions diffuses light while offering transparency throughout the space. This form is repeated throughout with stained oak wood dividers to break up the open space and alongside mezzanine staircases adorned by timber beams with varying widths. Interior walls are flanked by vertically-cut grey stone set with a diversified pattern to create rhythm while maintaining the industrial aesthetic of the concrete floors.
Members are also given exclusive access to a café in the mezzanine, with retail offers nearby offering the chance to browse a range of top-end athletic products.
