Major Bachelor Pad Material: YMCA Gym into Apartment
Mar 13, 2009 14:10
It sounds hard, but the Apartment,
an interior design agency, pulled it off. They completely converted a
7,000 square-foot YMCA gym into a beautiful 5 bedroom apartment
building. Every aspect of the apartment is stunning, from the vibrant
colors to the detailed wallpaper and carpets. This impressive building
even has an indoor garden and a 12 person theater.
In converting the oldest YMCA gym, all of
the colors were completely revamped, and a lot of restoration occurred,
but the building still contains some of the original features. The
original girders are still in place, although restored and painted to
match the contemporary style. Green rugs and pink furniture are mixed
with the unpainted concrete floors. The rooms are a mix of vibrant
chairs, covering a wooden floor painted with court lines. The whole
building is a perfect collaboration of the original gym, mixed with a
new contemporary feel.
The Apartment turned the lower level into
apartment space, while they decided to keep the upper levels as a
showcase of the agency’s work.
