Where most of the fitness centers around the world follow set rules of planning and interiors, Moksha was inspired by a will to define a new language for exercise and training centers. The client desired an extension to the existing gymnasium including a Spa and Spinning studio. This was to be housed in the basement. As a result, the architects were faced with the dual problems of limited space and limited budget.
To infuse the design with the energy required for such a competitive space, the plan was kept simple, yet fluid with spaces merging into each other via views through glazed surfaces. A raw, urban look was aimed for and achieved with the help of overlapping and free standing triangular metal frames, crisscrossed with ropes, providing both, an aesthetic element and stability to the design.
Subtle colors were used to bring out the whimsical elements of the design to the fore, such as unique lighting fixtures and bi-cycles hanging from the ceiling. Flooring was kept darker in contrast with the walls and ceiling, balancing the visuals.
