Specialist advice to aid design development of the poolside facilities and provide pool water treatment & heat experience cabin specifications and drawing packages for tendering. Construction phase services were provided to assist and support the principal contractor and the appointed subcontractors to achieve the high standards specified for installation and commissioning.

At Rathbone Square in London, the level deck lap pool and poolside thermal cabins are located at basement level and natural lighting is provided with a glass enclosed pocket and feature planting.  The sauna is crafted with Hemlock FSC timber panelling to walls and ceiling, with Ayous FSC timber multi-tier benches.  Floor finishes are continuous with the pool surround.  The heat source is an under bench type and ambient lighting is provided by hidden linear LEDs under the benches and a linear ceiling niche.  The steam room’s Corian cantilevered single tier bench seating in white enhances the clean minimalist layout.
