Crossfit Spero is the leading crossfit gym in the Oak Park area, and TBDA was pumped to design their expansion! We transformed a 1920’s auto garage with vintage trusses into a vibrant space with workout space, an office mezzanine, restrooms, lounge, and a day care zone. Six large skylights were planned for optimal natural lighting (tied to daylight dimming on the lights), and a custom overhead door allows the medicine-ball-carrying gym members to take their workouts to the street. The new airlock entry was visually warmed with a wood canopy tied into a wood storage wall for members and staff.
