The Hurlingham Club Outdoor Pool London

The Outdoor Pool was commissioned to replace a pool complex started 80 years ago, now dilapidated but still much loved by its members.

The new changing room building is larger than the original and adopts an elongated tear shape; it has long horizontal proportions, blue painted clap-board walls with white doors and pool accessories such as the large clock and life-saving rings.

This reinterpretation of a traditional lido building is however given additional interest by the new roof which is made up of a series of elegant metal clad vaults which float at a constant height above clerestorey glazing.

Hurlingham Outdoor Pool is a delightful complex reflecting the charm of a Lido in an exceptionally well-considered and executed whole.
