Morley's revamped lido makes big splash at Hurlingham Club

  • Comment

[First look] These are the first pictures of David Morley Architects’ rejuvenated outdoor pool at the Hurlingham Club in west London

Designed by the architect of the Olympic water polo arena, the scheme retained the qualities of the original 80 year-old lido-style buildings it replaced, while providing modern, accessible changing facilities organised into modules of wet and dry spaces.

The design incorporates the ‘materials, proportions, details and accessories’ from the original timber-framed, pitched-roof buildings. Externally the blue timber cladding of the changing rooms is broken up by white cubicle doors to reflect the club’s colours.

A band of clerestory glazing above allows natural light into the building and a zinc clad roof matches the grey slate roof of the original building.
