Pierre d’Avoine Architects refurbished and converted an atmospheric Victorian Grade 2 Listed swimming baths into an office and residential development. The project provided for a commercially viable development which preserved the interesting features of the existing building, and demonstrates the scope for re-conceptualising the complex in response to present-day needs. The empty swimming pool hall itself remains the focal point of the development. It has been lined and connected to the poolside with two ramps and provides a container for an open plan workspace. The adjacent changing rooms and other cellular spaces to either side have been converted into five residential studios. A new house has also been designed to replace the redundant plant room.
