We performed the interior design of BODY DIRECTOR, a private gym that developed its own original training method for over more than 15 years. Deliverables included a calm, quiet space which could be used effectively in a site measuring less than 60 m² located in the first floor basement of the newly built THE KITANO HOTEL TOKYO in Hirakawacho, Chiyodaku.

We split in two the 6m wide by 9.8m long space, arranging a fitness studio in one half and multifunction private rooms in the other half. We used contrasting zoning to enhance the atmosphere of the interior. On the two vertically long walls of the studio, we placed sound-absorbing cement excelsior boards, which are also used in gymnasiums, and created a dynamic feel in the studio by drawing colored patterns. For the two facing walls, we covered them with a 2.5m high mirror that adds breadth to the space while reflecting the image of those engaged in training. Training equipment is fitted inside the wall apertures together with benches and other furniture to save space. The natural flooring materials, featuring linoleum for the studio and warm oak herringbone and sisal hemp covering the reception and private rooms, provide a different atmosphere to each space.

We aimed to create a space embodying the duality of the dynamic image of a fitness gym and the hospitality appropriate to a luxury hotel.
