Sanibel, Florida

The Sanctuary Golf Club

Fitness Center

This 6,200 sqft facility consists of a fitness room with state-of-the-art cardio equipment. A dedicated stretch room, a studio for group exercise classes, a spa with two treatment rooms, newly appointed locker rooms, an expanded lap pool and pool deck.

The arrival space offers a place to gather before and after workout, fitness class, or spa treatment. The use of oyster shells speaks to the seaside location of this property. The monolithic texture of the oyster shell wall is an illuminated backdrop to the check-in desk. Wood tile floor compliments the oyster shell palette and is easy to maintain. The reception desk doubles as a retail display with ADA height counter integrated into the design. A fresh clean arrival space sets high expectation for the healthy activities in the adjacent Group Movement and Fitness Rooms. The sculptural edge-lit LED Neuron pendant fixture captures movement and energy floating overhead. Clean white painted beams and wood planked ceiling are accented with cove lighting.

The Group Exercise Room is designed to continue the uplifting, spacious, uncluttered feel with indirect lighting, mirrored walls and large windows overlooking the Tennis Courts. Engineered wood flooring is compatible with the lobby wood look porcelain tile. The strength training or cardio studio elicits the same clean, uncluttered appearance with custom upholstered trim on the equipment matching the soft pastel colors selected for the walls and flooring. Panoramic views to the surrounding lushly landscaped outdoor exercise amenities stimulate the workout environment inside.

An expanded lap pool and deck were created with shell imbedded concrete pavers and wave pattern stackable outdoor furniture. Pool tiles and umbrellas compliment the tropical landscape and sky.

The hall connecting the outdoor Pool to interior Fitness and Spa is infused with a tropical palette by the custom Jon Allen abstract metal wall panels. The metal is a medium that conveys power and demonstrates the brilliance of reflective light.

Washrooms, Grooming, Showers and Locker Rooms continue the clean tropical ambiance with the use of reflective glass mosaics, the continuation of the wood look tile, white millwork and frameless glass. While the original facility experienced a 2%-member usage, the new center has seen an increase of over 70% in usage.
