The strong design form uses the various volumes of space to create dynamic forms which respond in a contemporary way to the varying scales of the surrounding landscape.Radical openings” to the the landscape afford views into and out of the building with dramatic effect, particularly at night. The proposals provide a new leisure facility in Glenrothes designed to re-energise the town and reinforce the future master planning opportunities in terms of linkages and public realm. The project has been approved for planning in August 2009 and is due for completion in Autumn 2011.
