The largest sports facility in the Middle East, this gym’s reception is designed to reflect its sophisticated yet rugged nature. The reception counter, combined with the back wall, defines the space with dynamic forms with its top hung door with ropes and pulleys. A bench swing and folding seats complement the space. Retail space: The shop at Fit Republik is designed with modular boxes that hook into rows of metal rods. The rods start to misbehave in one corner of the shop creating an intriguing feature. A solid wood counter hangs from the ceiling with a ratchet belt.
