Kentish Town Sports Centre
Kentish Town’s Grade ll listed Victorian baths has been redeveloped into a modern sports centre. Having served the local community since 1901, it now comprises the 33m restored Victorian pool, a new 25m pool, a learner pool, fitness gym and aerobics studio. Residential accommodation has been added to part fund the refurbishment.
The project is low energy – a remarkable achievement for a sports centre, particularly one where the majority of the accommodation is within a renovated Victorian building. Among the energy efficient systems thoughtfully integrated into the building is the use of borehole water to deliver low energy cooling and heating in the complex spaces around the centre. This project has been awarded BREEAM 'Very Good' Rating under the BREEAM Bespoke 2006 scheme.
