London – Sleek and sophisticated, the newest location of luxury health club brand Third Space isn’t one you’d imagine would be welcoming to young members: in fact, Universal Design Studio-devised club – opened in the Inner London borough Islington – was completely thought out with local neighbourhood families and gym-goers in in mind.
This is the sixth opening from Third Space, whose vast health and fitness facilities have been a mainstay in London for the better part of 20 years (the company is also behind sister brand Another Space). In each of the locations, high-performance athletic spaces are met with premium retail and hospitality spots, ranging from sportswear shops to full-service bars and restaurants.
But Third Space Islington is the first of the company’s clubs to offer a dedicated area for families. Little Space, as it’s called, is designed for younger members and has a crèche, athletic rig, sports hall and pool. While parents work up a sweat in the separate adult club, tykes can get their move on during lessons and activities – just from the privacy of their own graphic playground.
