In Focus | Shelter Double Bay

In Focus | Shelter Double Bay

Tucked away in a leafy tree-lined street in Sydney’s Double Bay, Shelter is our kind of gym. Being that, it looks like nothing like a gym but more like a beautifully designed wellness retreat. With a minimal and oh-so relaxing colour palette of white pastels, silver and charcoal, this is one special space. Designed by Anna Trefely, the interior features blonde timber slatted feature walls and organic screens to replace solid walls, which create an open and airy interior. On the Shelter menu are spin classes, saunas - both traditional and infrared, ice baths and in-house smoothie bar.

The design approach for the interior was a simple organisation of space with simplicity as the focus.
