Adelaide Aquatic Centre Development

JPE Design Studio, Warren and Mahoney and Yellaka have worked in collaboration to design the new Adelaide Aquatic Centre Development. Responsive to its unique environment, the design expresses place and presence of Country. The new centre will create experiences both inside and out with a focus on health and wellbeing, connecting communities and sustainability. Responding to stakeholder and community feedback and an understanding of place, the design is a result of a multi-disciplinary design process with DIT, ORSR, key stakeholders and the design team.

The new Adelaide Aquatic Centre will provide a contemporary and multi-purpose community offering with a range of programmes and services including new landscaped surrounds, a café, water play areas, waterslides, a lagoon pool and fitness facilities. New pools will cater for rehabilitation, lap swimming, club sports, entry level diving, school carnivals and learning to swim.
Due for completion in the Summer of 2025/26, the all-electric building will have a reduced environmental footprint including timber structure and water sensitive urban design. The language and story of water is expressed as a cultural narrative in the building form and public realm including the water play experiences and choice of materials that connect us to place.
