Aqualibrium Centre, Campbeltown

Home  >>  Projects  >>  Sport/Leisure  >>  Aqualibrium Centre, Campbeltown

In Campbeltown the combination of swimming pool, library, creche, meeting rooms and cafe reasserts the public face in a prominent central location. It consciously asserts a powerful civic presence addressing Campbeltown Bay and the town centre whilst turning towards its park setting. Conceived as an outcrop, an echo of the Darvar Rock at the mouth of the bay, the building is experienced as a climb up through and past the library and crèche caves, the swimming pool and fitness suites plateau, up to the cafe prominentory overlooking the town. The result is, at one, a civic monumental presence addressing the town and a pavilion in the park.
