The Millennium Spa Project, Bath

Historic spa and contemporary buildings form the new Spa Complex, where, as conservation architects, the practice has been involved with five listed buildings including the Grade I listed Cross Bath and the Grade II* listed Hot Bath. In the Cross Bath the remnants of the oval Georgian pump room have been reinterpreted by a new oval pool with cantilevered canopy and 19th and 20th century partitions removed. Our proposals for the Hot Bath recreate the cellular nature of John Wood’s building and retain the later inner circulation route. Unsympathetic additions are stripped away to reveal the clarity and rigour of the original plan.
