Planning, design and construction services for developers, self-builders and homeowners


Figura designed this fabric-roofed swimming pool for a house in the Green Belt.

It was designed to avoid the need for Planning Permission. The low profile of the roof makes this possible.

The double-skinned insulated roof, supported by a galvanised tubular steel structure, spans the large spaces with a delicacy not possible with conventional materials.

Its 10% light transmission avoids overheating while gently lighting the centre of the pool. Its opening domes allow natural ventilation. Its large eaves and wide sliding glass doors provide the indoor/outdoor experience essential to pool life.

This is the Swimming Pool for the 21st Century.
