The site has constraints, so what?hmm
that render shows everyone having to walk through a car park to get to the entrance, some scruffy old walling between it & the pavement
The "green 'thing'" Isn't supposed to relate to the block behind it because it's a random shape included in the design to create some visual flair, I think it works. Why should the detailed lines match up? Who says they're supposed to?& it also shows some amazingly crap architecture!
it looks quite 60's, with random elements just stuck together:
the green 'thing' dosnt relate to the glass block behind it, theres some sort of entrance canopy that looks like an afterthought, none of the detailed lines match up.
Local newspaper in bad reporting shocka.notice they call it a rending (?)
I totally agree the existing pool is far from impressive and this will be a modern facility which will be a massive improvement on the current pool which is in a very poor state.The existing building is dour, depressing and utterly uninspiring, it deserves demolition in my opinion. The above building is fresh, modern and will make a far better leisure centre than the previous building ever could.
Seriously what were people expecting? Portland stone? Sash windows? Hyper modern stainless steel?
