Architecture plays a pivotal role in developing a community. It directs the physical environment. It defines how the town’s infrastructure will function. It also creates the space in which families will thrive and determines the overall community’s quality of life. If you want to build a thriving community, you must consider constructing buildings that will promote healthy lifestyles for the entire population. So, when 24-Hour Fitness sought to expand its location offerings in Colorado, Nevada, California, and Hawaii, it relied on Think Architecture to take its uniform gym design to the next level. Working directly with the 24-Hour Fitness team, our architectural development team performed an in-depth site investigation to create a design that accounted for the exact needs of each new gym site.
The project brought about the design and construction of several new fitness centers across the country, with customized designs outfitted for each location’s particular clientele. For instance, in California, our architectural firm committed to renovating the old 24-Hour Fitness building in Sacramento to transform it into an upscale and updated fitness center. We created a design that included demolishing 3,000 square feet of a post-tensioned slab, installing new steel staircases throughout the gym, relocating a basketball court, and a brand-new 2,800 square foot second-floor addition. All in all, these projects continue to be a staple portfolio piece that our architectural firm reflects on, especially in terms of community and land development.
