A redevelopment of the uncovered aging school swimming pool into a world class aquatic centre. The 2,750sqm covered yet naturally ventilated centre includes two pools for swimming and waterpolo plus a learn-to-swim facility. Surrounding the pools is seating including the original retained 1927 entrance, plus new double storey block housing the changing areas, upper viewing platform and plant rooms. The entire centre is covered by an intricate feature roof incorporating concrete and steel materials to produce a sleek exposed design for the 40m clear span.
