City of London Freemen's School Swimming Pool
We provided Acoustics design services for the new-build, 25m six-lane competition pool at City of London Freemen's School.
Located in the school's Grade II* listed grounds, the pool features exposed, white stained timber with views out to the surrounding woodland on all sides. Acoustic absorption lines three of the walls with seamless acoustic plaster at one end and slatted timber panelling on the side walls.
In addition, a 65sqm event space incorporates a deep window seat overlooking the pool. Independent, simultaneous usage on either side of the window is facilitated by a very high performance acoustic glazed screen. Ideal acoustic conditions for education are achieved in this space through the use of wood fibre ceiling panels, which also complement the interior design.
