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 slightly 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.
