Equinox Miracle Mile Los Angeles

Gold-dipped fluted columns and a pristine, glass-enclosed entry are the first signs that Equinox Miracle Mile has surpassed even the most sophisticated gym designs. The repurposed former TV studio and office now offers a balanced and relaxed environment with a streamlined look “that reflects both the energy of the neighborhood and the brand,” explains project architect Zhiliang Xiao of MBH Architects’ San Francisco office, with wine, gold, and cool gray tones melding with wood and stone. But it’s the continuous wave-like curve (on walls and ceilings) illuminated with a warm glow that is a soothing, eye-catching thread throughout the multistory atrium building, guiding members to the club’s many offerings, including four fitness studios, an open studio, spa treatment rooms, a juice bar, and a shop. “As the ceiling feature peels off into a double curve, a gold liner is revealed between two soffits to add a new layer of sophistication to the palette,” she adds.
