NEW YORK, NY
The Asphalt Green Aqua Center contains an Olympic pool, therapeutic pool and support spaces. A small cardio and fitness studio was expanded in 1998 to two new floors. Two existing floors were substantially reconceived as a single studio space. Alterations included demolition of large corridor and toilet areas that were no longer appropriate for the new program. Spectacular new views were opened up from the studios to the river and the field. A dynamic new stair suggestive of weight-lifting equipment links the two floors. New lighting and flooring were added to the facility, with different treatments at the cardio, weight and strength training areas. Mechanical ventilation was bolstered to improve performance on the exercise floors.
New infrastructure includes power and data wiring for monitoring client’s performance on the equipment. The systems are concealed and flexible, permitting changes to equipment and arrangement.
