Smartglass Project Focus - Kentish Town Sports Centre

Smartglass were approached by Wates to supply switchable privacy glass to a viewing gallery overlooking the 25 metre Grafton Pool at Kentish Town Sports Centre.

A total of eleven Smartglass panels make up the glass partition screen separating the pool and viewing area.   


Smartglass was specified for this project, by Roberts Limbrick Architects, to deliver privacy on demand for swimming sessions where the occupants did not wish to be viewed; this is particularly pertinent within Muslim communities where a level of discretion is required.


Smartglass has a certified IPX7 rating (the Smartglass has been tested one meter submerged under water with no defects) making it an ideal solution for wet environments.


Sanitation and hygiene standards are top of the agenda for public leisure spaces such as KTSC. Smartglass is an easily cleaned and low maintenance surface that can be disinfected regularly, adhering entirely with leisure centre sanitation regulations.


Smartglass is widely used within the hospitality, commercial and healthcare sectors as it illuminates environments, creating multi-functional spaces that adapt and respond to the needs of users at the flick of a switch.

We also provide professional advice to clients to develop custom-built solutions to address various design challenges in their respective work environments.

For us, design challenges are chances to adapt, innovate and create environments that surprise and inspire, both functionally and aesthetically.
