Experienced swimming pool architects in Berkshire

Add an indoor pool to your home is a wonderful way to create a luxurious space you’ll enjoy using for many years to come. Indoor pool buildings require precise planning and exceptional attention detail, with careful consideration made to location, existing space and surrounding environment.


At Horsley & Townsend we are architects who specialise in indoor swimming pool design. We’ll talk through your requirements and guide you through the options available before creating a design concept and accurate costings which result in an indoor pool which adds value to your lifestyle and home.

Indoor swimming pool installation design options

When it comes to adding an indoor pool to your property there are a number of options which may be available to you such as a detached pool building, a pool extension building or  installing a swimming pool in the basement. Alternatively, if you already have an outdoor pool, converting this into an indoor pool could also be considered.


A number of factors will have an impact upon the best type of pool installation project for you and your home, such as the amount of exterior space available. Installing an indoor pool comes with a range of requirements and as bespoke swimming pool architects in Berkshire, we’ll work closely with you to deliver the necessary design stages, from the conceptual stage, through to feasibility, planning, working drawings and installation.


Our swimming pool architect services cover all aspects of indoor swimming pool design including concept, planning (our expertise covers project planning in National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings), building regulations, design and drawings, insulation and energy requirements, structural analysis and integration.


The production of detailed design plans is an essential requirement for all indoor pool projects. Alongside our architect’s services in Berkshire, we also work with a number of experienced swimming pool builders and specialist contractors to ensure each project is realised to the highest standards. Last and by no means least, we will continue to provide on-site support during the construction phase of your project.
