FFC Park Ridge

Location:Park Ridge, Illinois
Client: Fitness Formula Club
 
Project description:

Fitness Formula Clubs commissioned Antunovich Associates to design their first standalone fitness club in Park Ridge, Illinois. The two-story building is strategically located within walking distance of downtown Park Ridge, Metra train station, and nearby residences, encouraging members to walk, bicycle or take public transit - intending to promote healthier lifestyles for the community.


The building program consists of a large open fitness space, gymnasium, natatorium, a range of fitness studios, and an open climbing wall ascending full height of the building and support spaces. The program also includes a wide range of social spaces such as the lobby, café, lounge spaces and outdoor pool and deck with bar and fire pit. In addition, there is a 250 car surface parking.


The building envelope consists of a stone rainscreen accented with a terracotta rainscreen, masonry, metal panels and large expansive glazing that expose the club’s activities. While the materials are modern in their use and create a strong visual identity, they still resonate with the older masonry buildings of Park Ridge.
