Palo Alto Exercise Studio

This beautiful studio started out as an empty shell with low ceilings and a concrete floor. Located in a very popular shopping center in Palo Alto, its clients use the Bar Method to stay in shape, utilizing ballet barres and specialized equipment in carpeted studios surrounded by mirrors and great music.

The most difficult part of this project was figuring out how to run the air conditioning system in a low-ceilinged building while still keeping the studios attractive. We built studios, restrooms with showers and changing areas, and in-common areas that are used for storage. The studios are well lighted and surrounded with modern speaker systems.

In addition, a vibrant retail area in the front of the space allows the owners to have an additional income stream. We also replaced the entire front of the space, and installed a modern and minimalist glass wall storefront that brings a light and airy feeling to the studio.

Since the remodel and its opening, the studio has enjoyed full membership and continued success.
