|Located in one of Los Angelesí oldest parks, the $9M Lincoln Park Pool and Bathhouse replacement project includes a new bathhouse building, upgraded lap pool, splash pad, and landscaped garden areas. The scope of work included the demolition of the existing bathhouse and pool, and replacement with a modern bathhouse and Olympic-size pool.
The overall design intent was to do away with existing unattractive barriers, which limited flow and views from the pool deck to the surrounding park, and to create a modern, safe and inviting aquatic facility for the surrounding community. A modern sloping metal canopy covers the new building, tying the program components into a single building form that takes inspiration from the original 1920ís Eastlake Park Conservatories. With a simple, modern design, the new aquatic facility is envisioned to revitalize a blighted, yet much needed, recreational community facility that pays homage to an important historic past.
