Health club, Berlin markt

with ORMS

 

Situated in Berlin-Mitte this health club and spa is providing on three floors the possibility to trim slim.

Throughout the club it was the intention to carefully interlink a mix of active and passive spaces. Illuminated walls and sequential screens separate the different zones and their moods. A cantilevering vision slot that bursts out of the dividing wall between foyer and pool hall acts like a shimmering aquarium, confusing the boundaries between private and public, water and street level.  The pool hall is a silent, timeless space that relies on the primary experience of bathing, relaxing and cleansing the body, a retreat within the fast tempo of the city.
