Located in the heart of England, Staffordshire based Keele University is the UK’s largest integrated campus university set among a 617 acre estate.
Included in this development are the university’s recreational facilities. The leisure centre is the core of all university sporting activities and clubs and has recently been renovated to provide a modern well equipped gym, housing the first UK Technogym Kinesis Fitness Studio.
Vanguard Contracts were contracted by Technogym with a view to creating the Kinesis studio to suit the desired fitness environment.
Kinesis is an innovative means of exercise as the fitness equipment is concealed behind a high quality veneer panelling, with weights and pulley modules designed to allow an infinite variety of movements and work-out routines that enhance strength, stability and flexibility.
The interior design is a significant contributor to the harmonious atmosphere, which aims to facilitate relaxation and concentration.
Vanguard successfully achieved this with the use of contrasting veneers, natural fibres and muted colours that combine to create a natural space that promotes a feeling of well being and self-collection.
