Hurlingham Club, London
Exclusive private members club
The Hurlingham Club sits on a magnificent 42 acre London site by the Thames. In 2011, David Morley Architects' completed the design of the Outdoor Pool based on original pool facilities built in the 1930s. Though much loved by the members for their character and charm, these had reached the end of their design life. The scheme comprised a 30m (or 100ft) pool, a children's pool, a changing room building and a cafe. The new changing room building is larger than the original but reprises its predecessor’s long horizontal proportions, blue painted clap-board walls with white doors and accessories such as the clock and life-saving rings. The new roof is made up of a series of elegant, metal-clad vaults that float at a constant height above clerestory glazing. The modern standards of accommodation, including TOTO NC WCs fitted with soft closing seats, create a facility for members to enjoy for the next eighty years. The interiors won an RIBA Award in 2012.
