World Design Award for Surrey Aquatic Centre

November 25, 2016

The Surrey Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre has been recognized on the world stage again for its design excellence and innovation. Designed by HCMA Architecture + Design, the project was lauded at the World Festival of Architecture (WAF) taking home the top prize in the sport – completed buildng category.

Through close collaboration with the local city authorities and diverse user groups, HCMA Architecture arrived at a design that maximized glazing towards the street, activating the project edge and blurring lines between interior and exterior spaces. The LEED-certified aquatic centre balances pro-athlete capabilities with the needs of recreational users.
