The Hurlingham Club - an award-winning renovation
Project NameThe Hurlingham Club - an award-winning outdoor pool
Photographer DetailsDavid Morley Architects and Tim Lucas, courtesy UK Wood Awards
They don’t come more quintessentially English and private than the Hurlingham Club in Fulham, but the glare of publicity was unavoidable when the club’s new outdoor pool facility won the coveted ‘gold’ in the 2012 UK Wood Awards.
The new features include a replacement 30 m pool, children's pool, beach area, changing room building and cafe – integrated into the picturesque club grounds abutting Hurlingham Park and the River Thames.
The original facilities were 80 years old and though much loved for their character and charm had reached the end of their serviceable design life.
The challenge was to retain the chaming of the original traditional lido-style buildings while providing high-quality, modern, accessible changing facilities with an efficient layout, maximising natural day-lighting.
