Health Directions Wellness Center
West Columbia • South Carolina
12,000 SF renovation of an old machinery shop for Lexington Medical Center’s fitness and health program, Health Directions. The Wellness Center includes a large open fitness and weight training area, group fitness zone, spinning room, personal training space, yoga studio, locker rooms and offices. The larger spaces are located along the existing exterior walls, and take advantage of glass interior partitions allowing plentiful borrowed daylight inside. The original suspended ceiling grid was removed and the existing hybrid space frame structure exposed and painted white to provide for a larger feel in the space.
On the exterior, a newly detailed parapet replaces the dated roof, and the façade has been revitalized by refinishing the existing synthetic stucco façade and adding a contemporary entrance canopy.
