Golden Lane Leisure Centre by Cartwright Pickard Architects
[RETROFIT AWARD PREVIEW] The refurbishment the Grade II Listed leisure centre designed by Chamberlin Powell and Bon is shortlisted in the Public Building category
The leisure centre has been modernised with the refurbishment of the swimming pool, badminton court and changing rooms, addition of a gym and dance studio and the creation of a fully accessible, reception area and circulation routes.
The design aims to maintain the character of the original listed building with non-original accretions stripped away to reveal as much of the existing building as possible - the transparency of the swimming pool enclosure has been reinstated and the distinctive concrete vaults of the club rooms retained.
The Retrofit Awards winners will be announced at a special dinner on 12 September
