Hastings Borough Council commissioned NCA to bring back into use this long derelict 1930’s swimming baths. NCA recommended minimal intervention and repair to the existing concrete structure to ensure a basic watertight envelope to house skate ramps in the former pool areas, and to bring the building back into meanwhile use. The project has been pivotal in the regeneration of the White Rock area of Hastings.
NCA have returned to White Rock Baths in 2020 to improve access and open up the East courtyard for protected outdoor dining and retail units.
