Bespoke swimming pool design in Buckinghamshire

At Horsley and Townsend  we work with closely with our clients to provide outstanding indoor swimming pool design services. Our wide ranging expertise covers indoor, basement and detached pool buildings. Installing a swimming pool will not only add significant value to your home, it also has the potential to transform your lifestyle.

Our approach to swimming pool design

We work closely with our clients from design conception to completion, providing a bespoke service throughout. Our process begins with an in-depth consultation during which we’ll talk through your requirements and aims for the project.

There are a number of options for having swimming pools installed, with the best approach depending on the style and location of your property. Basement swimming pools are ideal if outdoor space is restricted, whilst a detached pool building, designed to complement your property’s garden landscape, makes a stunning addition. If exterior space allows, you could also consider a luxurious swimming pool and spa.

We understand the importance of ensuring that additional exterior buildings and building extensions are designed to complement the unique features of a property, whilst also sitting comfortably within the surrounding landscape. As such, we have long-standing experience of designing buildings in green belt land, open countryside, conservation areas, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, national parks and World Heritage sites.

As highly experienced swimming pool designers in Buckinghamshire, we’ll use our expertise to create an outstanding solution, designed to enhance your property.
