  • Cost : $5.2M
  • Size : 10,480SF
  • Completion Date : 2002
  • Project Type(s) : Recreation


  • Located on the campus of Santa Monica College, the Santa Monica Swim Center is a popular civic destination. Siting, access and environmental impacts of the Center were sensitive community issues, and workshops were held at the beginning of the design process to reach a solution that would satisfy the College, the City and concerned neighbors.
  • The public facility includes a competition pool and a recreational pool. A two-story support building features locker rooms, office space, and a meeting/instructional room, with a viewing deck located on the second floor. The design features a clear polycarbonate block wall at the 16th Street edge of the site which buffers pool noise from the neighborhood while allowing light to pass through.
