Arrowstreet has designed three unique climbing gyms for client, Brooklyn Boulders (BKB), since they began expanding from their namesake location in Brooklyn, New York. Our first two collaborations were adaptive reuse designs: the Somerville location is a converted warehouse, while the Chicago gym combined two adjacent church buildings. The company’s latest gym in Long Island City is located in the lower levels of a luxury residential building and was a departure from BKB’s usual industrial-inspired spaces. Each site has a distinct personality while offering traditional climbing and bouldering walls, personal training facilities, and Active Collaborative Workspace. We’re looking forward to creating more exciting spaces with Brooklyn Boulders as they expand their unique brand across the country.
