Set on the grounds of the old Kimmage Cricket ground, this building exemplifies the client's moto, "Excellence is not about doing one thing well, it is about doing everything superbly".

The 25m indoor pool forms the focal point of the interior. To the front are 10 beauticians treatment rooms, reception, cafe, lounge, and behind the pool are change rooms and spa / shower facilities.

The 3 curved roofs, supported by a series lattice trusses and triangular hip members, enclose a vibrant and stimulating space for working out. Each cardio piece is equipped with its own TV monitor, thus members can select their own channel during their workout. On the 1st floor, a 170sqm studio provides for aerobics, yoga and dance classes.
