Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre
Transforming a Community Pool into a Centre for Fitness & Community
The Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre redevelopment comprehensively transformed this 1959 swimming centre into a state of the art aquatic leisure centre, whilst still retaining its significant heritage fabric. The rejuvenated aquatic centre includes outdoor 50m and 25m lap pools. In this way it will provide for swimming carnivals, lap swimming, springboard diving and water polo. Additionally, an interactive water play area and an extensive surrounding concourse with spectator grandstand. In this way, the landscape has created significant recreation areas, with the design expressing strong geometries and arrangements that give respect to the existing heritage building character and qualities.
