Tooting Bec Lido

WR-AP Tooting Bec Lido Pool View

Following WR-AP’s winning competition entry in May 2022, the South London Swimming Club has appointed WR-AP to work collaboratively with them to redevelop a new public entrance swimming and changing facility at Tooting Bec Lido in South West London. A beach within the city, its brightly coloured changing facilities are reminiscent of the English seaside and it has been a haven for local people since 1906.

The proposals form part of a wider masterplan for the historic site that began five years ago with the opening of a new pavilion building (2017) and current plans to re-line the swimming pool, alongside the creation of a new pump house and efficient filtration system. WR-AP’s competition winning entry seeks to create a net zero carbon facility that will incorporate sustainable measures including GSHP, solar panels, a grey water system for toilets and the potential to harness heat from the one-million-gallon filtration system to boost water temperature for showers.
