Dulwich Leisure Centre is one of several London Borough of
Southwark leisure facilities to have been refurbished in recent
years. The centre has served the local community since 1891,
originally as Dulwich Public Baths.
WGI was selected by Buxton Building Contractors, on the basis of a
successful track record in the sport and leisure sector, to support
its tender submission for the 3,600m2 Grade II listed
centre and two other local facilities.
The brief covered a complete upgrade of the building and
facilities whilst preserving and enhancing important historical
features. Further requirements included a substantial increase in
dry sports facilities, provision of a café and crèche and
facilitation of inclusive use by disabled and ethnic groups.
WGI's role was as lead designer and provision of full
architectural services for the two-phase, £5 million project.
New facilities, extensive remodelling and attractive and
innovative design have resulted in substantially increased business
and staff retention. Innovative design and materials have also
combined to reduce environmental impact and reduced operating
