Levitate unwraps Nottingham swimming pool
[First look + project data] Levitate Architecture and Design Studio has completed this £9 million leisure centre for Nottingham City Council
The project tranform’s Nottingham’s 1850s Victoria baths close to Sneinton Market Square into a new leisure facility.
The schemes features a 70 station gym, 25 metre-long swimming pool, a children’s fun splash area, a teaching pool, a multi-activity studio and sauna and steam rooms.
Located within the Sneinton Market Conservation Area, the building’s 19th century clock tower was retained and repurposed as an entrance to the swimming pool.
The original pool had been backfilled and hidden behind brick squash courts in the early 1970s.
