The Hurlingham Club Outdoor Pool
David Morley Architects perfectly understood the sensitivity of the pool area to Club members and the setting within a Conservation Area. The new state of the art pool environment draws on the much-loved rhythm, scale and materials of the original lido style buildings, whilst providing modern and accessible facilities for members to enjoy.”
The original Outdoor Pool at The Hurlingham Club in West London was eighty years old and though much loved by the Members for their character and charm they had reached the end of their design life. David Morley Architects won an invited competition in 2008 to design a state-of-the-art facility. The resulting scheme comprised a 30m pool, a children's pool, a changing room building and a cafe, integrated sensitively into the picturesque landscaped grounds of the Club. The new buildings draw on the rhythm, scale and materials of the originals, including adopting the distinctive Club colours, while providing modern standards of accommodation and a facility for the members to enjoy for the next eighty years.
