Boutique fitness brand BXR is located on the 25th floor at 22 Bishopsgate, one of London's tallest buildings - dubbed Europe's first 'vertical village'.
The Site - 22 Bishopsgate, London
Styled as Europe’s first ‘vertical village’, and one of London’s tallest buildings, 22 Bishopsgates' 25th floor is the home of BXR City, making it the highest gym in the capital.
BXR City is Crossover's second project in 22 Bishopsgate, having delivered the multi-zone audio and event space AV systems for 'The Market' for Rhubarb (Rhubarb Hospitality Collection), 'the foodie heart' of the development.
The Project - Audio and Lighting for Boutique Fitness
Featuring high-spec fitness classes (branded as pay-to-train concept 'Sweat by BXR') and a members-only gym, this is the second BXR site in London to feature audio, AV and lighting systems designed, supplied and installed by Crossover, after Sweat by BXR in Canary Wharf, and alongside our AV design and consultancy for BXR Doha, Qatar.
As with the forerunner BXR sites in Marylebone, Canary Wharf and Doha, luxurious high-end specifications for the interior designs have been created by Bergman Interiors.
BXR City - key AV elements:
- Members only gym floor - audio system
- Versa climbing studio - audio system with instructor microphones, ipad-controlled lighting system
- Strength and conditioning/ boxing studio - audio system with instructor microphones
- Reception, changing rooms and auxiliary areas - background music
- Reception - digital signage
Versa Studio Lighting
One of the showpiece elements of BXR City is the spectacular lighting display in the Versa climbing studio delivered by Crossover. Consisting of an array of LED pixel tape, UV and spot lights, a range of vibrant lighting effects can be recalled from a control app running on an iPad next to the instructor.
From pulsating and strobing effects, to simmering low lights, the studio can be transformed to suit a range of moods and phases of a class, from the anticipation-building intro to the class, through intense exercise sections and cool-down phases.
