We are pleased to announce completion of Auriens’ Chelsea, a retirement facility showcasing elegance and luxury in the heart of London’s Chelsea. Aqua Platinum were delighted to be appointed as the design and build contractor for the resident wellness facilities on this outstanding development. No detail has been left unconsidered; not only to achieve a beautifully designed pool but also to provide Rolls Royce of plantrooms, based on a Devin Consultancy’s specification, Auriens’ Chelsea is the most incredible project we have been a part of.
The resident’s wellness facilities include a 15-metre deck level swimming pool with a bespoke triple slot detail for the level deck trough, complete with parallel secondary drainage slots to pick up excess surface water. Our designers thoroughly thought out the strategy to deliver this detail which included bespoke stainless steel supporting frames, ultimately achieving a crisp and clean linear aesthetic. The trough continues seamlessly through to the vitality pool which includes two air massage recliners and a large stainless-steel bench for residents to enjoy.
The pool hall is complete with a bespoke Himalayan salt sauna, which gives health and wellness benefits through Halotherapy. Salt levels in our bodies affect our energy, cell activity and blood sugar levels. The negatively charged ions found in Himalayan salt help to improve our moods and overall health.
The swimming pool and the vitality pool are located on the lower level and accessed via the spa. Beneath the world-class facilities lies the plantroom which in itself is the best plantroom that Aqua Platinum have ever built. The state-of-the-art filtration equipment installed is of the highest quality that could only be found in a Devin specification, from the custom-made pumps and strainers to the deep bed filters, medium rate UV units and much, much more. The control panels were made to order to allow full BIM integration, allowing the facilities management team to control and monitor the systems with the utmost ease.
We worked closely with PDP architects, a renowned London based firm, who designed the contemporary building with inspiration from the elegant Georgian townhouses of Chelsea, implementing a warm brickwork design, classic proportions, and utilising the distinguished setting. In addition, Aqua Platinum worked alongside Multiplex, building on our ever-growing relationship to deliver this major development in the midst of a global pandemic. We thank both the Auriens’ team, Multiplex and our valued suppliers that made this milestone possible.
Auriens’ Dovehouse has been an incredible project to be a part of, whilst with its challenges. Aqua Platinum are delighted to have delivered this project to the highest standard and whilst doing so learnt valuable lessons that we will execute on every project going forward.
