The Canton Club @ The Village Shoppes at Cobbs Corner, is a 17,500 SF, full service health club with fitness, free weights, 1,000 SF aerobics studio, 500 SF spinning studio, a childcare center and a women’s only area. The Canton Club is located at the rear of a renovated shopping center in a long rectangular space with a length to width ratio of 1:5 and a ceiling over 20 feet high. The major design feature is the curvilinear glass and aluminum curtain wall which separates the aerobic studio and the spinning studio from the long rectangular fitness area. The exterior windows at the long rear wall were enlarged to lighten the lobby opposite the main center entrance. The steel beams and 20’ high ceiling were left exposed in the fitness area. Hanging pendant lights and bright colored banners add lightness and a festive air to the entire Canton Club.
