About the project
The original building contained a 25 yard long pool, its own heating system, a minstrel's gallery and extensive changing rooms. Archial was commissioned to recreate a swimming pool pavilion that matches all modern aspirations, whilst retaining and reflecting the original building. The new building will be slightly shorter than the original to allow for external decking and will accommodate a 21 metre by 10 metre pool. Special glass to the roof is to be used to deflect the sun's rays to ensure against overheating. In addition, a thermal system will be installed to ensure the temperatures can be controlled automatically.
