American interior design practice Arrowstreet have created BKBX, a 771 sq m "adventure lifestyle ecosystem" in Boston, US.

Geared towards athletes who regularly embark on high-intensity excursions, the new facility features a bouldering wall, an "adventure bar", and an integrated fitness programme devised by Dr Paul Juris, formerly the executive director of the Cybex Research Institute.

The gym – Arrowstreet's fourth project with Brooklyn Boulders – also boasts an innovative recovery studio and a large training space equipped with a TRX system, weights, and monkey bars.

Theatre-style lighting illuminates the club's neutral interiors, helping to produce a dramatic atmosphere that corresponds to BKBX's adventure theme.

In a description of the space, the designers said the recovery studio was created "to extend the wellness continuum for the Brooklyn Boulders brand".

They added: "We designed this space to provide a digitally advanced spa-style experience, featuring 3D Digital Assessment, cryotherapy, infrared sauna, compression sleeves, recovery devices, and muscle therapy devices."
