Balboa Park Pool
San Francisco, CA | sports/recreation | community/education
Balboa Park Pool represents an opportunity to catalyze its surroundings, spurring increased community participation and providing the neighborhood with an enhanced family resource.
The design for the Balboa Park Pool preserves the qualities of the original Brutalist structure while enhancing the user experience and upgrading the structural and environmental systems for a more sustainable facility. By reconfiguring the locker rooms and administrative spaces, the design team developed a new community room within the existing shell. A reconfigured entry and landscape creates a fully accessible facility, improves the flow of traffic, and strengthens the connection to the community, making it a vital resource to be enjoyed by the community for years to come.
