Specialists in swimming pool design in London

At Horsley Townsend, we are architects who are specialists in swimming pool design and construction. Our services are available throughout the Greater London area, offering bespoke swimming pool design to enhance your lifestyle and add value to your home.

Swimming pool design and build services

There’s no doubt that adding a swimming pool to your home is an exciting way to make the most of your property. As specialist pool designers in London, we understand that the design and build process is very different from other building projects. We’ll work closely with you throughout; helping choose the perfect location, whilst guiding you through areas such as planning permission and green energy options.

Our wide-ranging expertise covers all types of swimming pool and spa design, including swimming pools in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and basement pools. We take great pride in ensuring projects are delivered on time and on budget, providing you with reassurance that your pool project will be of the high quality we know you expect.

Our swimming pool design process

Our services for swimming pool design in London begin with an initial meeting, during which we’ll discuss your ideas and wishes. We’ll use our expertise to help you choose the perfect location for your pool, finding the best option for your property, whether this is a detached pool building or basement pool, for example.

Every pool project requires attention to detail, strategic planning and feasibility reporting. Before any construction work can begin, we’ll create a bespoke design whilst working in close collaboration with you. To help you visualise your indoor pool, we use the very latest CAD packages, enabling you to select the perfect layout and design features.

As a specialist London swimming pool company, we enjoy close working relationships with reputable engineers and contractors who have the skills to construct a superbly executed end result.
