Seymour Centre building in Marylebone, London W1.
The Seymour Centre, a Grade II listed community swimming pool, built in the 1930s, is set to undergo a major transformation. Managed by Everyone Active, the building has been modernized several times and repurposed for various community and sports uses.
The proposed development seeks to refurbish and upgrade the leisure centre into a multipurpose, mixed-use building for the community, with leisure as a key use. The design aims to utilise underused and redundant spaces to offer a great asset for the local community.
The refurbished centre will include a swimming pool, health and fitness studios, a library, flexible community/office space, beauty treatment rooms, and a café.
The refurbishment works will include the removal of the redundant swimming pool tank, relining the existing pool tank, and the installation of photovoltaics on the inner roof slope.
The proposed soft play area will feature an ETFE 'pillow' roof, and there will be the provision of cycle parking and waste and recycling facilities.
The purpose-built Seymour Leisure Centre, designed by architect Kenneth Cross, was constructed between 1935 and 1937. It was intended to accommodate two indoor community pools, a stage, a spectators' area, a laundry, slipper baths, and a superintendent's flat.
