Clough House Farm : Swimming Pool Enclosure

AV Architects assisted in the design and acquisition of planning and building regulation approval for this new swimming pool enclosure at Clough House Farm in Oakworth. This project presented an interesting commission, the pool was an existing feature which had a agricultural enclosure which was poorly insulated and only enabled the pool to be used intermittently when favourable weather presented itself. The project brief was to renovate or replace the existing to improve the aesthetic of the enclosure and improve the control of the internal environment to enable more consistent use. We were also required to extend the footprint to develop an office / garden room space and improve the changing facilities. The host property is listed which added another aspect to the commission.

The original enclosure was stripped back to its steel frame which was retained. New external walling, glazing, roof and rooflights were used to reform the enclosure and the structure extended to form the office space which features a cylindrical form projecting into the garden. This approach affords panoramic view from within the extension but minimised obstruction of views from the garden and the host dwelling.

Natural and traditional materials have been used and combined with more modern powder coated aluminium frames in a subtle manner to form this clean and more sophisticated building.
