Located in the Al Serkal precinct, this unique spinning studio embraces a youthful vibe, with innovative lighting and audio technologies creating a trendy yet casual cafe ambience. Designed by Broadway Interiors with the fit-out work being carried out by Horton Interiors, the Crank Studio provides a high-energy environment through its sensory design. In addition, it optimises the limitations presented by the industrial site.

A mezzanine floor was created by double stacking to maximise the functionality of the space with a street-style graffiti design theme. To prevent the sound from spilling outside, the designers also worked on acoustics using carpet tiles. The toilets and shower rooms were created in a simplistic, industrial aesthetic with concrete brick walls, pendant lighting, wall art, and laminated partitions.

Additional space was turned into a secondary studio for stretching and yoga activities and featured quirky, recycled elements, such as bikes on the wall and drums as a base for the reception counter, adding character and functionality to the overall design. The crank also features a cafe, concealed storage rooms, and a lounging area with an edgy design pervading throughout.
