FFC Park Ridge

Location:Park Ridge, Illinois
Client: Fitness Formula Club
Project description: When commissioning their first standalone fitness club in Park Ridge, Illinois, Fitness Formula Club wanted to capitalize on location in order to promote healthier lifestyles for the community. The two-story building is strategically placed within walking distance of downtown Park Ridge, enabling members to walk, job, bicycle, or take public transit.

The building program consists of a large open fitness area, gymnasium, natatorium, a range of fitness studios, and an open climbing wall, which ascends the full height of the building and support spaces. The program also includes a wide range of social areas such as the lobby, café, lounge spaces, and outdoor pool and deck with bar and fire pit.

The building envelope consists of a stone rainscreen accented with a terracotta rainscreen, masonry, metal panels, and expansive glazing that expose the club's activities. While the materials are modern in their use and create a strong visual identity, they still resonate with the older masonry buildings of Park Ridge.
