The new changing room building is larger than the 80-year-old original and adopts an elongated tear shape; it reprises its predecessor with long horizontal proportions, blue painted clap-board walls with white doors and accessories such as the clock and life-saving rings.

This reinterpretation of a traditional lido building is, however, given additional interest by the new roof, which is made up of a series of elegant, metal-clad vaults that float at a constant height above clerestory glazing.
