Equinox opens doors on Studio Munge-designed club in Manhattan

by Andrew Manns | 19 Dec 2018

Luxury fitness and lifestyle operator Equinox has opened "E Madison Avenue" – a private fitness club designed by Studio Munge.

Located in Manhattan's Upper East Side, the member's only space, which was crafted to evoke what Studio Munge have called the "distinction" of the area’s townhouses and museums, features a Pilates studio, spa, kitchen, and lounge.

In a statement, the design firm said that the facility's "interiors embody a residential yet modern atmosphere illuminated by symmetrical forms, warm tones, and rich materiality".

Like Equinox’s other venues, E Madison Avenue offers members bespoke wellness experiences and proprietary-style access to nutritionists, physical therapists, and coaches specialising in high-performance athletics.

Speaking on the opening, Harvey Spevak, executive chairman and managing partner at Equinox commented: "As with our other Equinox offerings, this membership is more than just access to a club: it's a lifestyle and a community designed to help every member maximize their potential—however they choose to define it."

The company, which currently manages 96 full-service clubs across the U.S., is slated to unveil its first-ever hotel in 2019.
