Case Study: Third Space

Away from the hustle and bustle of Soho’s busy streets lies a sanctuary of luxury fitness, Third Space. The site is the first in the UK to be fitted with a bespoke Tesseract functional training rig. Due to the complex structure of the building, Third Space needed a partner with both the creative thinking and technical expertise to help us create a bespoke rig that embraced the intricacies of the space.

Third Space Rig

The Tesseract rig which is 9m in length features a multitude of exercise stations. On one length of the rig there are two dirty south bars and a multi-grip pull up bar. On the other side, the rig structure has been designed to facilitate suspension training for up to 12 users.

The frame was specifically designed to sit under a large skylight that allows natural light to pour into the functional space and gives it a real essence of the outdoors, despite being inside. To enhance that feeling and create a high impact space that would give members a really distinctive experience, D2F also recommended and installed artificial turf flooring.

Third Space Exercise“D2F got it right from start to finish. They understood the brief, nailed the design and painlessly carried out a professional installation. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Tesseract provides our personal trainers with a huge amount of scope to develop exciting and engaging programmes for our members that add value to the Third Space proposition. In addition, vital space has been created by D2F allowing investment into further CV equipment and of course freeing space for the rig itself, which fits seamlessly into the fabric of the club. As one member said ‘it’s a thing of beauty’.” John Penny, Group Managing Director, Third Space.
