Pool House in Mapua
Activekidz Swimschool in Mapua wanted to extend their teaching season by adding an indoor pool to their existing outdoor facility. Sitting on the hill above the village of Mapua, overlooking Tasman Bay and the Richmond Ranges beyond, the new building needed to be in keeping with the self-catering chalets on site and nestle unobtrusively into the landscape. Our clients wanted a contemporary look with plenty of exposed timber to frame the views through the large glazed areas. The roof and end-wall cross-bracing added a fun element to the design which worked well for an area that was to be used for teaching.
