Rockville Swim Center Outdoor Bathhouse
The City of Rockville contracted design services to demolish the existing outdoor bathhouse. A new 5,000 SF bathhouse was constructed on the existing foundation. Features include handrails, seating areas, lighting, and ramps to improve accessibility for senior citizens and those with ambulatory disabilities. The bathhouse design allows for day lighting and openness with a perceived floating roof structure that is tied with trellises to the exterior wings of the bathhouse. The bathhouse has acoustical designs to minimize noise between areas. Sustainable design features included day lighting techniques, durable-low maintenance materials, and high solar reflectance roof.
