The Lensbury, a Private members club in Teddington, has benefitted from the significant refurbishment of its 1014 sq ft leisure facilities, designed by zynk in partnership with Peter Woods, Managing Director of PW Leisure Consulting.
zynk was asked to re-create a new hotel gym design comprising The Lensbury’s Holistic studio, Group cycling studio, gym floor and Hi-Energy/HIIT studio. The Club wanted to increase the footprint for its holistic and group cycling studios to meet with a growing demand for these classes from both guests and the local community.
Inspired by The Lensbury’s first floor location, and backdrop of treetops from the stunning park land around Teddington Lock, zynk’s hotel gym design ideas have brought these outside elements inside using a contemporary theme that appeals to the Club’s demographic
The treetop theme continues throughout the leisure facilities with timber panelling featuring routed metal strips that depict tree branches. Slatted walls have been used to divide exercise space and replicate the experience of looking through tree branches, providing subtle privacy for members. The colour palette consists mainly of dark green, light wood and coloured lighting.
Working closely with project manager Peter Woods, and equipment supplier Technogym, zynk re-designed the gym and equipment layout, configuring internal exercise zones to ensure a smooth and efficient customer journey. Extra space for the holistic and indoor cycling studio design was created by removing an existing room and re-configuring the downstairs floor plan.
Lighting solutions include bespoke pendant lighting in the main gym floor area which provides both direct and indirect lighting and creates a unique ambience throughout the hotel’s leisure facilities design. Dynamic programmable lights feature in the group exercise studio, helping instructors create the perfect environment for each class.
‘When we needed to deliver a sophisticated fitness environment for the discerning Lensbury Club members, zynk Design was our go-to partner. Having delivered on all of our objectives, we are delighted with the end result.’
