An RIBA award winner in 2010, this swimming pool complex is located within the walled garden of a Grade II listed former rectory. The building is a contemporary statement that remains sensitive to it’s historic surroundings, the 21st Century’s addition to the property’s rich architectural history.
The aged, Cotswold stone walls of the garden provide the enclosure, with the walls of the building disappearing, ensuring you are always connected to the garden. The roof is a separate, minimal canopy providing shelter, with a fully retractable roof light able to open up to the sky.
The pool backs on to a leisure building that provides a home cinema and games room with views of the walled garden, bar, gymnasium, steam room and changing facilities.
