Located ​below​ ​the ​​ground ​floor​ ​of ​85 ​​Broad, ​​Rise ​​by​ ​We ​is​ ​a ​​holistic​ ​wellness​ ​concept ​ ​that ​combines rejuvenation ​​with​ ​exhilaration,​ ​connecting ​​to ​the​ ​mind, ​​body, ​and ​ ​soul. ​​As​ ​a ​facility​ ​intended ​ to ​offer elevated ​wellness​ ​experiences​ ​through ​community-based ​group ​​fitness​ ​classes, ​multiple ​ ​boutique studios, ​and ​a ​complete ​spa ​​all ​​under ​​one ​​roof, ​​the ​​goal ​was​ ​to ​​design​ ​spaces​ ​that ​each​ ​felt curated and ​special ​​but ​​connected ​as​ ​whole.

Juxtaposing ​​concepts​ ​of ​​“hard ​and soft”​ ​and ​​“light ​and ​dark”​ ​both ​visually​ ​and ​texturally, ​the ​​design team​ ​set ​the​ ​building’s​ ​pre-existing ​structural ​​steel ​​and ​base building ​components​ ​against ​​polished finishes,​ ​natural​ ​materials​ ​(stone, ​​marble, ​wood), ​and custom​ ​artwork​ ​to ​create ​a ​timeless​ ​and ​layered aesthetic.

Because ​​the ​facilities​ ​are ​located ​​below​ ​grade, ​​the ​​designers​ ​wanted ​a​ ​space ​that ​felt ​​open ​​and ​airy. Opting​ ​for​ ​bright ​and ​neutral ​color​ ​palettes​ ​in​ ​the​ ​common ​areas, ​ ​the ​design ​​team​ ​employed ​indirect lighting ​​throughout ​​the​ ​space ​creating ​​flattering ​​visuals​ ​with​ ​a​ ​warm​ ​atmosphere. ​Accent ​​fixtures​ ​are used ​​in ​the ​​lobby​ ​to​ ​delineate ​ ​space ​​creating ​moments​ ​of​ ​pause ​and ​visual ​​playfulness. ​Hidden ambient ​light ​is​ ​used ​throughout ​the ​various​ ​gym​ ​programs​ ​--​ ​each ​space ​creating ​​an ​​even ​​glow​ ​that ​is comfortable ​for​ ​members​ ​during ​​various​ ​wellness​ ​programming.

Each ​studio ​​has​ ​been ​​designed ​​with ​​its​ ​own ​personality​ ​for​ ​workout ​programs​ ​that ​feel ​​both ​communal and ​curated.

● Using ​​natural ​​stone ​ throughout, ​​the ​​Superspa ​​offers​ ​members​ ​a ​serene ​​experience ​with​ ​a steam​ ​room, ​​sauna, ​​bath,​cold ​deluge, ​shower, ​lounge ​​space, ​and​ ​a ​cafe. ​Minimal ​in ​decor, ​the space ​plays​ ​with ​visual ​contemporary​ ​geometry​ ​in ​contrast ​​with ​​traditional ​​materials.
● Turf ​provides​ ​members​ ​with ​space ​for​ ​high ​performance ​​training ​​space ​that ​f​eels​ ​like ​the outdoors. ​With ​a ​large ​green ​turf ​floor​ ​found ​in ​outdoor​ ​fields, ​​it ​makes​ ​pushing ​weights​ ​along the ​floor​ ​a ​​breeze. ​The ​space ​is​ ​also ​​outfitted ​​with ​weight ​equipment ​and ​suspended ​​monkey bars.
● The ​Fight​ ​and ​Flight​ ​studios​ ​feel ​raw​ ​and ​​industrial ​​as​ ​the ​​exposed ​base ​​building ​​structure​ ​is complimented ​with ​dark​ ​colors​ ​and ​utilitarian ​rubber​ ​floors. ​Accent ​ ​lighting, ​mirrors, ​equipment (boxing ​bags​ ​and ​gloves​ ​in ​​Fight; ​​wooden ​rings, ​​wood ​​water​ ​rowers​ ​in ​Flight)​ ​and ​activity​ ​make these ​​spaces​ ​feel ​alive ​and ​energized.
● The ​​​Flow ​​​studio, ​used ​​for​ pilates​ ​and ​yoga, ​offers​ ​a ​respite from​ ​the ​city​ ​with soft ​lighting, light natural ​wood ​wall ​​paneling, ​wood ​floors, ​and ​​suspended ​​plants.
● Locker​ ​rooms​ ​offer​ ​members​ ​luxurious​ ​Malin​&Goetz​ ​products, ​soft​ ​lighting, ​framed ​artwork​ ​and high-end ​fixtures​ ​and ​​materials.
● Lobby​ ​includes​ ​mirrored ​​panels​ ​throughout ​to ​​make ​the ​​space ​​feel ​voluminous​ ​and ​​fresh reflecting ​​light ​and activity​ ​from​ ​all ​​sides​ ​of ​​the ​space.
