Clients of ours whose house we have worked on in Oxshott, Surrey asked us to design a new swimming pool at the far end of their garden. During the briefing and design process the scope of work grew somewhat and we finally settled on a slight larger scope of work … a swimming pool, a gymnasium, full changing facilities plus a relaxation area.

In other words a full on leisure centre for their family ! Because of the scale of the operation, we elected to design the new building using industrial construction techniques, with all the steel structure exposed.

So although it is a totally private initiative, and located in the garden of a private house, the new swimming pool does have the feel of a dynamic modern leisure centre, and has proved immensely popular with friends and family alike.
