Phase one provides two outdoor pools with views of Victoria harbour

The first phase of Farrells’ curvaceous new Kennedy Town Swimming Pool building has opened in Hong Kong.

Phase one provides two outdoor pools with uninterrupted views of Victoria Harbour and Belcher Bay Park. Phase two, scheduled for completion in 2017, will add two indoor pools and two indoor jacuzzis contained beneath a columnless roof. These will be separated from the outdoor pools by a sliding wall of glass which can be opened during the summer.

The architects used landscaping, tree planting and green walls around the building to form a link between the neighbouring Belcher Bay Park and a proposed waterfront park on the Victoria Bay quayside.
