Humming Puppy Yoga Studio




Having completed the BCA upgrade works on behalf of the landlord, the Tenant also engaged SPM to complete the fit out of a unique Yoga studio, new to Sydney but already in Melbourne. Working with the client based in Melbourne and the architect in Switzerland this project presented as a communications challenge.

With a dynamic and changing plan, SPM worked through the challenges of distance to accommodate the changes while still maintaining the unique character of the building. By embracing the original features of exposed brickwork and timber support structures the, new marries seamlessly with the old.

Along with the install of a new structural steel staircase, the studio also required extensive insulation treatments, to allow for heated yoga sessions. By using the unique structure and coordination of colours the insulation knits perfectly with the building features.

Taking advantage of ceiling heights, SPM helped to resolve cost and structural considerations to accommodate a unique and interesting Perspex feature. This wall acts as a divider between client and staff areas, and creates an interesting lighting spectrum that complements the space.

From a derelict unused space to a premium studio in an up and coming area (Chippendale), SPM have created a studio that fits well within the eclectic atmosphere of the neighbourhood.
