Swimming Pool, St. Peter’s School

A bold and striking building in an important location that makes a positive contribution to the diverse architecture of the school campus while housing a large single-volume swimming pool.  The sophisticated but simple and practical treatment of the pool interior is matched with a large scale but subtly detailed exterior. [The contextual use of brick and stone and the expression of the large laminated beam structure are brought together with a monumental cubic composition that is impressive while fitting into an important historic built and landscape setting.]

Architect: B3 Architects
Client/Developer: St Peter’s School
Presented by: Cllr. Keith Hyman, The Rt. Hon. the Lord Mayor of York
