The much sought after Marylebone address of a 450 m2 Grade II listed converted church has been transformed by Bergman Interiors to become the The Engine Room – London’s first boutique rowing studio where the design enhances performance.
Veiled behind ornamental architecture, this state-of-the-art fitness studio hosts a revolutionary space that takes inspiration from the movement of oars and light on water of river Thames to create an interior that emboldens performers to push their limits. As the intensity of the rowing increases the lights on the walls change with the pace of the music changing from cool white to Yves Klein blue to vibrant red.
From the exposed hammer beams and original stained-glass windows, to the refashioned church pews and suspending light installations, The Engine Rooms is a collective of unique contemporary schemes and traditional character – a true form of spatial innovation that showcases Bergman Interiors’ diversity.
Engine room is another iconic fitness landmark after the smashing success of BXR.
Wall and ceiling lighting in the studio are provided by The light lab, while the fitness equipment is from Technogym.
