“The Guildford Aquatic Centre is a 75,000 square foot expansion to the existing Guildford Recreation Centre. The new Aquatic Centre is a recreation and therapeutic aquatic destination, providing training opportunities for swimming, water polo, and other aquatic sports as well as the capacity to host competitive swimming events. The unique architectural and urban design features of the Aquatic Centre provide the community of Guildford with a world class facility and a landmark building.

The design is conceived as a magic box with the pixelated precast concrete exterior acting in tension with the white pearl natatorium interior.

The main feature of the natatorium is the prefabricated wood truss system, generated from the City?s ?Wood First Policy? initiative. The architect worked closely with the design-builder to create a pre-assembled truss fully integrated with lighting, mechanical services, and acoustic absorption. The prefabrication process also greatly reduced the construction time. As the prime architectural feature in the natatorium, the wood truss provides both economical and unique solutions to the structural and operational requirements of the facility.

The continuous ribbon of skylights allows beams of sunlight streaking across the walls and moving with the time of day, enhancing the animation of the natatorium.”
