The reception is defined as a welcome space, from which all the circulation takes places, with a visual permeability towards the training area, allowing a direct contact with this area. The boundary between training and support program is defined by an
expanded metal glass wall throughout its length.
The reception also acts as the role of distributor, leading to the bar and access area reserved for gym members.
The idea of implementing a Bar, as an accessory program, aims to create a living room for the users. The organizational structure was designed in a way that the bar could be enjoyed both by the members as well as general public. The visual permeability between the bar and training area is intended to attract the people to enjoy the gym.
In addition to the training area, the zone reserved for the member consists of a changing room for people with reduced mobility, trainers changing room and members support offices: nutrition consultations, physical assessments and massages. The changing rooms for the general public are located on the first floor.
At last, all the inner harmony is enclosed from the context as if it were a box, encased with
expanded and perforated metal
plates, allowing that the energy created inside to be transmitted to the outside.
Above all, our thought was focused on the assumption that Academia 20 should be a gym for all, more than a training space, a place for socializing and fraternization, within a modern and contemporary space.
