DXA studio worked closely with the owners of Modo Yoga NYC to create an environment that embodies their “calm mind, fit body, inspired life” core principles. Offering a state-of-the-art facility that can precisely calibrate heat and humidity settings for the two 60 person studios – the building is positioned to become a premier destination for hot yoga in New York City. It is optimally located between the East River Waterfront and vibrant Bedford Avenue, and will have an inviting street presence with a custom fabricated, weathered steel storefront that can completely open up in warmer months.
Within, aspects of the building’s light manufacturing character, such as exposed brickwork, tall ceilings, and column free spans are celebrated. The interior design balances rustic and refined through a series of intimately scaled spaces wrapped with reclaimed wood and a green living wall, and cleanly designed, diffuse-lit expansive studios, to provide a serene setting for yoga.
DXA Studio received honorable mention in the Health & Wellness category of the 2017 NYCxDesign Awards.
