Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre - Fife
Completed in September 2013, the £11m new build leisure centre is one of the most striking town centre facilities in the UK. The building is a shop window to the Esplanade with light, colour, activity and vibrancy engaging and delighting the public. The massing of the building has been broken down to respond to the smaller scale and roof-scape of the adjacent context with simple, dynamic forms adding drama and visual tension. The new centre offers a wide choice of dry-side facilities, purpose-built fitness studio and four-court sports hall, as well as a multi-activity children’s play centre and café. In addition the building offers a 25 meter six-lane swimming pool with poolside spectating and a training pool. Thanks to exceptional sea front views, the 70-station gym is proving to be the perfect place for the local community to get active and improve fitness levels.
