An extension of existing leisure facilities, with a striking addition to the award-winning Formby Pool in Sefton.

The extension has been designed to fit seamlessly with the existing pool building and uses the same materials such as copper cladding, curtain walling and timber, as well as taking design cues from the existing building.

As part of the extension design, an asymmetrical monopitch roof design was chosen to mirror the form of the existing pool hall building and to provide a distinctive end to the building, without challenging the original design concept.

In addition to this, the new flexible studio space benefits from a state-of-the-art music and lighting system.

The end result is a modern leisure facility that will enable Formby Pool to remain as a focal social and leisure hub in the heart of the town centre and be a valuable asset to the local community.

Both the Board and I are very excited about how the project has turned out. Pozzoni has taken key elements from the original build, delivering a seamless extension which has exceeded our expectations
