RIBA Awards 2012 Citation:

The Hurlingham Club Outdoor Pool London

The Outdoor Pool was commissioned to replace a pool complex started 80 years ago, now dilapidated but still much-loved by its members.

The new changing room building is larger than the original and adopts an elongated tear shape; it has long horizontal proportions, blue painted clap-board walls with white doors and pool accessories such as the large clock and life-saving rings.

This reinterpretation of a traditional lido building is however given additional interest by the new roof which is made up of a series of elegant metal clad vaults which float at a constant height above clerestorey glazing.

Hurlingham Outdoor Pool is a delightful complex reflecting the charm of a Lido in an exceptionally well-considered and executed whole.
