IYMV was the first purpose built yoga building in Europe and the proposed 3rd studio will allow the client to expand their teaching to meet demand and develop their standing as a centre of excellence.

The new glazed reception area will create a more welcoming entrance whilst maintaining the sense of retreat as you pass through the gap in the existing defensive stone façade towards the yoga studios.  Pools of natural light lead you up to the new top lit rooftop studio and framed views allow you to practice yoga whilst feeling nestled in the canopy of the mature trees that surround the building.

The site is constrained with poor access resulting in a lightweight design that can be pre-fabricated in components to reduce the time on site and keep the building in operation during the works
