B / SPOKE Cycling Studio looks to fill a niche in
modern high end fitness. Located in downtown
Boston the design looks to maximize usable space in
a very small footprint. The space holds a centralized
cycling studio with a main reception visible from
both Federal Street and the large adjacent building
lobby, lockers, and men and women’s bathrooms.
With careful placement of each programmatic piece
the main reception becomes a visual draw from the
surrounding street and lobby. Through the use of
industrial yet modern materials and by emphasizing
tall open spaces with exposed piping and duct work,
what would be a very small space, is experienced as
on which is large and open.
