Flo Yoga, West Hampstead, London
When we were asked to design this exercise studio in North London we looked to vinyasa yoga – specifically Sun Salutations – for inspiration.
Mirroring the sequence of linked poses, we created a free flowing space but with clearly defined areas for arrival/ departure and exercise. The main focus of our design was light. Our aim was to harness its energy without distracting class attendees from their yoga practice.
We used slatted screens to frame the light and create the transition between the reception area and the studio. We then softened itby overlaying a translucent linen curtain, adding both shadow and texture. This is now an ambient environment to be enjoyed before, during and after yoga sessions.
