Q: What’s Primary’s Approach to Design?
A: Form – First and foremost, we strive to create spaces which allow people to feel focused and comfortable. Our design airs on the side of simplicity – celebrating original building details, the character of raw materials, and select fine furnishings. Each location is filled with greenery; moss walls, fresh flowers, and live planters can be found throughout. We draw inspiration from mid-century modern and Danish design, leading to an environment which feels clean yet welcoming.
Function – We have taken steps to ensure that your business’ productivity is never compromised. All office partitions are double glazed, yielding sound reduction ratings similar to that of solid plasterboard walls. Audio-masking solutions have been installed throughout common areas, reducing the impact of distracting ambient noises. All enclosed offices are equipped with modern, wall to wall carpeting – helping to deaden echoes and further reduce sound transmission between spaces. As part of our commitment to sustainability and workplace health, we rely on natural, renewable and recycled products whenever possible, ensuring that all of our finishes are low or zero VOC.
Q: How Does Primary Incorporate Health and Wellness?
A: Fitness Studios – Our fitness studios are the heart of our locations. These spaces are where members come together to work out, experience share, take a break, or re-center during the work day. Primary has partnered with various local fitness groups to provide members with a robust, rotating schedule of classes each week – ranging from yoga and guided meditation to strength & resistance training.
Offsite Activities – Each week, Primary members are invited to participate in off-site group runs, bike rides, hikes, and a variety of other exercise-based outings. These activities are organized by the Primary Management Team and are typically included in the cost of membership.
Shower Facilities – Each location is equipped with private men’s and women’s shower rooms. We feature EO shampoo, conditioner and body wash, full towel service, and basic toiletries. Day lockers are also available for use.
Bike Storage + Bike Sharing – As part of our commitment to an active lifestyle, we have installed bike storage in all of our locations. We’re also happy to announce our partnership with CitiBike in New York. Primary members are entitled to a discounted annual subscription as a benefit of membership.
