Jubilee Pool ­with Scott Whitby Studios has won a RIBA South West Award!

The project has delivered a new café and restaurant alongside a suite of community and therapy spaces for the Grade II listed Art Deco saltwater bathing pool in Penzance.

The triangular site is framed by a series of Art Deco buildings which are infilled with new high-performance glazed extensions. Bi-fold doors allow the buildings to open up to the public promenade, allowing them to be used for various community events and activities. A sculpted roof structure – a timber stressed skin formed from a series of layers – unites the scheme with an undulating form facing the street.
