Kobox expands London portfolio with Marylebone studio

People come here to experience a clubbing vibe in a high-intensity environment, so we needed to maximise the most important elements – light, sound, and atmosphere.

Nightclub-themed boutique boxing studio operator Kobox has opened its third London location in Baker Street, Marylebone.

With the motto of “where fight club meets nightclub”, Kobox offers 50-minute HIIT sessions accompanied by inspiring music and blacklights to simulate a late-night entertainment venue. The training combines boxing training with rounds of strength training using free weights, resistance bands and slam balls.

The latest studio was designed by architecture and interior design practice SHH, which was given a brief to bring the Kobox's nightclub theme to life with "unusual design elements" that combined features from entertainment venues with a modern, state-of-the-art gym facility.

“This is the second location we have designed for KOBOX, which is expanding with new sites across London to accommodate a rapidly growing client base," said Rose McShane, Project Architect from SHH.

"People come here to experience a clubbing vibe in a high-intensity environment, so we needed to maximise the most important elements – light, sound, and atmosphere.

“Our approach was to focus on which elements would have the greatest impact on the overall user experience.

"This meant we had to overcome obstacles such as adding extra acoustic insulation despite the low ceilings and, because the budget was limited, being selective over which materials we used to ensure that there was brand continuity throughout the studio.

"We’re really pleased with the result, which truly brings the nightclub theme to life."
