Olga Vetosheva and Eduard Zakharov of HOROMYSTUDIO have designed this modern gym located within the forest near Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
Surrounded by mature trees, the gym (or sport pavilion), has an outdoor area with a pool and sun deck.
The stairs that separate the pool from the gym have built-in decorative planter boxes and hidden lighting means the space can be used at night.
Another feature that’s been included in the covered outdoor area is a decorative screen that has an artistic leaf pattern that lights up.
Inside the gym there are three floors, the main floor (seen below) is home to cardio-vascular equipment, the basement is full of boxing equipment and locker rooms, and the upper floor is a light-filled a yoga studio.
Here’s a look at the boxing gym where custom-designed backlit mirrors are shaped like figures of famous boxers and colorful lighting helps to keep the space vibrant.
In the bathroom, mirrored doors and another artistic mirror draws your attention and helps to reflect the light in the small space.
The three floors of the gym are connected by a spiral staircase that features handrails made from copper plates.
At the top of the stairs, the gym opens up into a light filled yoga studio.
Circular lights as well as a ceiling of windows ensures that the space is bright and that views of the forest can be seen when working out.
