First Strokes Swimming School

A private teaching pool facility designed for specialist teaching company, First Strokes Swim Schools.

The site presented a number of constraints to the brief, including challenging topography, adjacent to the A14 major trunk road and within the curtilage of a Grade II listed building.

The resulting design is nestled into the embankment and takes the form of a traditional weatherboarded barn with a number of  subtle contemporary twists to create the bright, airy and fun internal volumes.
