Splash Swim Center
Walnut Creek, CA | sports/recreation
Adaptive reuse provides a colorful, welcoming environment for children to learn to swim.
Adapted from a 1920’s-era auto maintenance garage, Splash Swim School offers comprehensive learn-to-swim programs for children ages six months and up in a supportive and fun indoor environment. Flooded with natural light, the colorful natatorium enhances student/teacher interaction. Adjacent to the natatorium is a viewing area with seating and a full-height glazed wall, allowing parents and caretakers to comfortably watch their child during class. The bold exterior color scheme advertises the new swim school and the entry trellis ushers families into the sunlit reception area. New off-street car and bicycle parking is screened by drought-tolerant plantings and new sidewalks. The building’s exterior and landscaping were designed in consideration with Walnut Creek’s long term planning goals.
