The Bar Method

The Bar Method corporation opened its first franchise fitness studio in the Twin Cities at the T3 (Timber, Transit, Technology) building, the largest mass timber office building in the US. Maintaining the industrial and urban feel of the building was an important design goal.

Bar Method workouts include dance conditioning techniques based on physical therapy, requiring soft and padded flooring materials in the two studios. Placement and interplay of expansive mirror surfaces, barres, sound system, and bright LED lighting achieve a highly appropriate backdrop. The atmosphere, created through tone on tone use of white, beige and grey materials, is refreshing yet calming.

Our design resulted in an upbeat, energizing ambiance that is contemporary and sophisticated.
