Case Study

From Tennis to Swimming - The Pool House, Winchester

When it was decided that the existing tennis court could be better utilised as an enclosed swimming area Adam Knibb Architects designed a truly sustainable structure to blend in with properties surrounding woodland.

The Pool House is constructed with a timber structure. Natural oak cladding and a sedum roof help the building to blend further into the environment.

The stunning building design makes use of large areas of glazing. Adam Knibb Architects specified large Schuco ASS50 Slimline sliding doors for the main elevation overlooking the pool, which feature an opening corner within 12m of glazing.

A triple track design allows 66% of the glazing to be fully openable.

Alco Glass worked closely with Adam Knibb Architects to design special features such as the cantilevered corner construction and flush glazed appearance.Alco Glass used conventional Schuco window frames hidden within the wall finishes to create the contemporary frameless appearance.

David O’Connell of Alco Glass said “This has been a truly interesting project and working with Adam to achieve the planned goals has been very exciting”
