Les Mills is an Auckland based gym that has twelve New Zealand operations but has programs licensed in 100 countries with over 130,000 certified instructors globally.

The brief called for a refresh of their entire Auckland campus with the first phase being the boxing and training area. The newly refurbished space sees a large industrial volume re-purposed to accommodate three new offerings for members; functional training, boxing, and 100-bike immersive cycle studio: the world’s largest.

The insertion of a 350sm (3750sf) cycle studio, clad in mirrored bronze-tinted stainless steel, creates a strong delineation of the space allowing the functional training and boxing areas to sit discreetly on either side.

The finish of the immersive studio dematerializes in its industrial surroundings creating a drama to fitness training with the targeted lighting creating a focus on the individual.
