John Harris Hauptbahnhof 1100, The Icon
Raw shell with golden core.
The new John Harris Fitness Club – already the seventh gym designed by BWM Architekten – is directly accessible from Vienna’s main train station. The new fitness club stretches across two levels that are arranged around a core containing the lifts and connecting stairs. In terms of interior design, this part of the building is known as the “golden centre”, around which the training zones, changing rooms and a premium wellness area are arranged. The building’s rough concrete look sets the agenda for the “industrial elegance” design theme. Metal elements and visible cables along the ceiling correspond with the industrial aspect, while the furniture provides the elegance. A rough shell with a golden heart!
