The main design feature is a large staircase that diagonally crosses the space, marking the difference in height from the ground floor – where the shoe store is – and the upper floor, that hosts a proper gym. To achieve an urban feeling the designers selected industrial materials such as metal and concrete, combined with softer surfaces to guarantee good performances in terms of heating and sound absorption.
