Architect sought for White Rock Baths regeneration

  • Comment

Hastings Borough Council is seeking an architect to transform the subterranean White Rock Baths into a new venue for skateboarding and BMX

The former health spa and Turkish baths was last used an ice rink before falling into disrepair more than 15 years ago.

The council is now planning to transform the seafront landmark into an indoor arena for BMX and skateboard competitions featuring retail and a café.

A feasibility study for the project was completed by Brighton-based Neil Choudhury Associates earlier this year.

Originally opened in 1870, the White Rock Baths was remodelled and expanded in the 1930s and later modified again to become an ice rink.

The building is mostly subterranean but has a small presence at promenade level close to Hastings Pier which is due to reopen next year following a £14 million regeneration by dRMM.

The winning team will develop the project up to RIBA Stage D and, following approval by the client carry the scheme forward to completion.

The appointed architect-led design team will be expected to include a conservation architect, building architect, structural engineer, structural surveyor, M&E engineer, quantity surveyor and project manager.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 26 June.
