Mexico City cycling gym Síclo is a stylish new home of 'physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing'

by Kim Megson | 19 Feb 2016

Interior designers and brand developers Ignacio Cadena and Michel Rojkind have created a cycling gym in Mexico City, which has been designed vibrant space for enhancing “physical and emotional fitness.”

Described as “a 100 per cent Mexican concept”, Síclo is a 420sq m (4,500sq ft) glass-fronted gym formed around a huge white concrete stairway. The steps of the monolith – which are covered with multicoloured poly-chromatic cushions and a small number of gym bikes – provide a community space for film screenings, healthy food banquets, educational workshops and medical clinics.

Síclo’s two main cycling studios are stacked underneath the stairway, “integrating physical, emotional and spiritual fitness and wellbeing” within the complex.

“Síclo set out the task of building a top notch project by bringing together talented specialists in diverse disciplines to define a new sporting experience,” said Rojkind.

“Like a public plaza where day-to-day encounters give life to a space, Síclo makes what happens inside the classes just as important as the community life on the outside.”

Speaking to CLAD, Ignacio Cadena added: “The design explores social interaction as a detonator for collective consciousness. It has become an iconic public space for the active community; an impeccable feat of construction, lighting, structural and acoustic design.”
