In Progress: 10 Gracie Square

This 4,700 s.f. sleek, modern tenant fitness center is being built on two basement levels of a historic apartment building at 10 Gracie Square in Manhattan. The gym features a squash court, double height cardio area with skylight, and a separate stretching room with local dimming. Direct/indirect rectangular and circular pendants provide diffuse ambient lighting throughout with track lighting at weightlifting and Pilates reformer stations to help residents to check their form in mirrors while exercising. Accent lighting at textured ceramic tiled columns, grazing lights at the double height brick feature wall, and halo lighting around mirrors bring focus to architectural features.
