Flywheel Spin Center, Chicago, IL

Located at 710 North State Street, zpd+a Architects designed and bult a spin center for New York-based Flywheel Sports, Inc. This was the first Chicago location for Flywheel Sports, Inc. The project consisted of a spin studio with raised theatre-style platforms for 50 cycle locations. The spin studio is a semi-circular shape arranged around an instructors position with a mirrored wall giving the visual impression of a hundred people in this room cycling to 100 decibels of music. Great attention to detail was given to the acoustical design and construction of the walls, floors and ceiling in the spin studio to control the amount of sound being generated by the studio to the adjacent space.

In addition to the spin studio, zpd+a designed a reception/greeting area, lounge area, retail space, locker area for 50 guests, changing rooms and bathrooms. The design utilized a black rubber sports flooring called Eco Night throughout the space. The use of galvanized metal and stainless steel give the space an industrial feel. The project was opened for business on time and on budget in August, 2011.
