A Birmingham, AL-based architecture firm designs luxury community amenity, scheduled to open fall 2018
Alys Beach announces the addition of a highly anticipated design project in the community, the Fitness Center. Designed by Nequette Architecture & Design, a Birmingham, AL-based architecture firm, the Fitness Center at Alys Beach encompasses an expansive 15,000 square feet, and it is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2018.
The design of the Fitness Center at Alys Beach was inspired by the peaceful location with a strong focus on natural light in every room of the building. Surrounding courtyards will be visible to the Fitness Center visitors through large glass framing. Every detail of the Fitness Center was designed with the community in mind to not just be a gym, but a gathering place for all individuals.
“From the street corner, you will enter the fitness center through a carved timber screen wall into a forecourt garden that is designed to calm and decompress you as you arrive,” says Louis Nequette, Lead Principle of Nequette Architecture & Design.
Once inside the lobby, guests will be able to view the inner courtyard, which is framed by several main functions: the lift room, a glass-like box consisting of strength training on the first floor and cardio on the second floor with an outdoor terrace fitness classroom; an indoor-outdoor covered pool with supporting lockers and treatment rooms; the recovery room with group exercise, yoga, and meditation area with its own outdoor court; the movement room featuring TRX and spin bikes, and the tennis court area.
“Fitness is such an important part of our homeowners’ daily lives, and the Fitness Center at Alys Beach will be one of the most impactful developments for our town,” Vice President of Sales Tom Dodson says. “Alys Beach is excited and pleased to move forward with the construction of this long-awaited amenity.”
Located at the corner of North Castle Harbour Drive and Nonesuch Way, the Fitness Center will feature top-of-the-line equipment, an indoor recreational pool, a steam room, and massage therapy. Guests will also be able to participate in a variety of fitness classes including yoga, spin, and suspension training.
