Bespoke services for swimming pool design in Hertfordshire

Horsley Townsend is an architectural practice with wide range experience of swimming pool design. Our expertise covers the design and installation of exceptional pools including indoor, basement and detached pool buildings. An architect-designed pool will enhance your lifestyle whilst adding significant value to your home.

Our approach to the design and build of swimming pools is to work closely with our clients throughout the process, from conception to completion. We’ll begin with an in-depth consultation which gives us an opportunity to talk through your unique requirements and aspirations for the project.

Unique swimming pools

Our expertise covers the swimming pool design in a wide range of locations, with the best approach depending on the style, size and location of your property. If outdoor space is restricted, for example, a basement pool can offer the perfect solution. Detached pool buildings can be designed to include a spa, presenting a stunning option for properties with a sufficiently spacious garden landscape.

At Horsley Townsend we have an in-depth understanding of the importance of ensuring that any additional exterior buildings or extensions are designed to enhance the existing building, whilst complementing the property’s surroundings. As such, we have extensive experience of designing buildings in open countryside, green belt land, covernation areas, national parks, World Heritage Sites and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We are highly experienced indoor swimming pool designers in Hertfordshire, with many years of expertise in working closely with clients to create stunning solutions, designed to enhance homes in a wide range of locations.
