UK practice Roberts Limbrick Architects has won planning consent from a local council for the revamp of Victorian swimming baths in Lewisham in south London.

The £10m ($15.8m) revamp of Forest Hill Pools has been developed from a feasibility study carried out by Allies and Morrison, and public consultation.

Works include refurbishment of the existing façade while a new 25m pool, learner pool, gym, community rooms, cafe and plant facilities will be added to the building's rear.

The proposed design for the 0.4ha site has been backed by English Heritage, according to bdonline.co.uk.
