    Northampton Swimming Pool

    New swimming pool design provides contemporary school and community facilities.

    The school was in need a new facility that could provide contemporary facilities for students, while also encourage broader community use after hours.

    The existing four lane 25m swimming pool, PE classrooms, dance studio and changing rooms s current design standards but also fulfils the school’s aspirations for a contemporary multi-use facility for both the school and the local community.

    The external building was designed with this community use in mind. The translucent polycarbonate cladding provides filtered daylight to the double height pool room during the day, and glows in the evenings becoming a prominent beacon on the site, signifying the evening access and continued use of the facilities.
