Kensington Pool

Kensington below ground

This pool and spa complex is on the third level below ground in a seven storey property in Kensington, London. The underground leisure area is part of the latest build mews house construction in the heart of London. The considerable engineering works included a 25 metre deep excavation to accommodate the multi-million pound development.

A number of companies were involved to complete the ‘tardis like’ dwelling and London Swimming Pool Company were appointed the specialist pool contractor based on their expertise for installing sub ground level pools within listed buildings.

The swimming pool measures 12×4 metres and features a moving floor which is elevated through the water to be set at different depths as required.

A Heatstar Phoenix XF 3000 Super+ was chosen for the project offering dehumidification via fresh air ventilation, air heating, pool water heating and active heat recovery to the air.

The exacting design and specification of the pool and spa took around a year and a half and the subsequent construction lasted approximately two years.

London Swimming Pool Company say the client was ‘very pleased’ with the luxurious and practical combined leisure and entertainment area in the property where space is at a premium.
