Culture & Recreation
The Grandview Heights Aquatic Complex is part of a large multi-phase development and anchors the eastward expansion of the Grandview Heights community in Surrey, British Columbia. The building’s scale and strong presence on a prominent corner are conceived of as the first step in a larger vision of a denser and more urbanized building form for the area.
This building’s elegant design incorporates a mass-timber undulating roof that is both striking and practical. The complex and curved roof rises to suit the height required for the 10-metre, competition high-dive tower at one end of the building and at the same time, provides direct views into the various pools from the road and sidewalk.
