Z&B Changle Lu Studio
A boutique fitness and dance studio for Z&B Fitness in heart of the French Concession. Inspired by the owner’s Scandinavian heritage MDO’s design features a simple yet elegant palette of materials.
Each space is connected by a dark threshold, creating a series of picture frames. The movements of ballet and dance framed as if in a painting.
Instead of hiding all the storage, the gym equipment is neatly organized into black metal frames. The sides of which are lined with taught black exercise bands, always under tension, kudos to the stretching and hardwork performed by the studio’s clientele.
