DLM Architects have won the RIBA South East Regional Award for the Bathing Pools. David De La Mare, David Radford & Helen Bonner Morgan picked up the prestigious award at last nights ceremony held at at Farnham Castle, Surrey. The Bathing Pools was one of 16 projects that made the shortlist – the judges visited the Guernsey in March to see the building and meet the team, they also met a group of swimmers from Guernsey Swim All Seasons who helped showcase the building as a community asset.

The judges praised the project, saying “Successfully integrating architecture with nature, the design makes a positive impact on both the community and the environment. With a £1.5m construction cost and taking just a year from planning permission to completion, it is a great testament to both architect and client.”

David De La Mare said of winning the award: “Winning an RIBA award is something I’ve always dreamt of.

Recognition amongst some of the biggest names in the industry is testament to the skill and dedication of the entire team, and everyone involved in delivering this incredible project. The real reward has been seeing the impact it has on our community.”
