The Piedmont Park Bathhouse and Pool Renovation project is a part of the Piedmont Park Master Plan, which aims to revitalize and modernize the historic park. The Bathhouse, originally built in 1911, and the current swimming pool, built in 1973, were two of the remaining renovations to be undertaken as part of the Master Plan. The Bathhouse and pool area renovation project consisted of new restrooms, showers, changing rooms, a lifeguard station, and multi-use facilities with space for programs, exhibits, and events.
TSW was retained by the Piedmont Park Conservancy to provide schematic landscape design and construction documents for the pool area and surrounding grounds of the Piedmont Park Bathhouse and Pool Renovation. The project was designed to not only modernize the facilities but also to be environmentally friendly, and as a result, it received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification. The Piedmont Park Bathhouse and Pool Renovation project received the 2010 Atlanta Urban Design Commission Development of Excellence Award.
The renovation project is not just a renovation but an opportunity to provide the community with state-of-the-art facilities that are both environmentally friendly and accessible to all. The new restrooms, showers, changing rooms, and multi-use facilities with space for programs, exhibits, and events will provide visitors with an improved experience. The renovation is an investment in the future of the community, one that will provide benefits for years to come. The Piedmont Park Bathhouse and Pool Renovation project is an example of how design and sustainability can come together to create a beautiful and functional space for the community.
