The new build scheme for Erdington Pool is designed to replace the existing pool on Mason Road. The new scheme is situated on Edwards Road adjoining Orphanage Road and Hart Road and is designed to give the building some prominence and a clear identity in the area.
The building has been carefully positioned on the site to minimise the impact to the neighbouring residential properties.
The entrance area is clearly visible from the main road and at the farthest point from neighbouring residential properties. The building is easily identifiable as the new Community Leisure Centre from Orphanage Road.
The car park has twelve spaces and also includes disabled parking facilities, a coach drop off for school swimming visits within the site and also benefits from two entrances to help keep the visiting traffic flowing more easily.
Landscaping will encompass new trees around the new building down three elevations and new low level planting to the car park and the surrounds. Careful design of the surrounding paving and streetscape will benefit from contrasting textures and a public realm area with bench seating.
The building has been designed to complement the local surroundings and has been reduced in height where it adjoins the neighbouring dwellings making it a suitable feature for the area.
