Club Pittsburgh

1139 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA

The private health club consists of three floors that include physical fitness rooms, private lounging rooms, steam rooms, and whirlpool. The first floor serves as an office. A side entrance leading to a new elevator and lobby gives access to the club from the side. The front entrance leads to the separate office floor.

The narrow and long space suggested the combination of curved walls and hung ceiling planes to give the space more fluidity and contrast the more rigid rhythm of the exposed original wood joists.
