ON THE BOARDS
Going the Extra Mile
In 1998, with a vision of being the most elite club in the region for health, wellness, and socialization, the Oxford Athletic Club broke ground in Pittsburgh with a facility unlike any other in Pennsylvania. Today, to secure their position as a premier fitness club in the industry, OAC sought out design experts for facility enhancements.
Chambers began developing design solutions that intertwine fresh aesthetic with supreme functionality in an effort to position the Club as a fitness leader not only in Pennsylvania, but in America. The proposed master plan includes a partial demolition and interior renovations to the existing building. Additionally, minor exterior elements of OAC will be getting a facelift to match the club’s new logo and modern direction.
Interior enhancements will receive the most attention; from ornate light fixtures to contemporary furnishings to impressive wall paneling—the Club will bolster stylish, state-of-the-art details for current and prospective members to enjoy. Chambers’ design reimagines current facilities like the main level Market Café and Golf Simulator, ensuring that each designated room provides members an unmatched experience. Wine, beer and cocktails will now be available on tap in the café, and the new simulators pair precise craftsmanship with advanced technology for an exciting swing.
Renovations will also make room for new fitness programs like cycling, yoga, pilates and boxing boutique studios, as well as cutting-edge training programs and fine dining opportunities. Every inch of the 36,750 SF Club—from corridors to restrooms to the lobby—will be transformed for a premium experience and heightened ambiance.
The plan was approved, construction is underway and renovations are set to be completed soon!
