The architectural design organises the functional spaces of the Aquatic and Leisure program on a single level for simplicity and ease, and employs the circular external space of the outdoor pool as a clear and legible spatial element around which all programs are organised. The circular ‘ring’ design provides clear sight lines and legible circulation for the connection of all programmatic elements. Within this structure all programs have been organised according to best functional relationships, best pool orientation for sun and shade, and best opportunities for views of the park and city beyond from the main internal pool hall.
Specific functional relationships considered key to the design include the programming of the facility entry in a manner that is well connected to pedestrian and parking entry points, a community social space including café, foyer and retail opportunities.
