In 2018 the Club opened the Silom Wing, a brand new family and sporting facility, the first Phase of redeveloping the old Poolside buildings. It is hoped to start on Phase 2 in 2019 which will complete the project with modern exercise and changing facilities and airy eating and drinking venues.
Silom Wing: In 2016, Architects Chapman Taylor won a conceptual design competition for redeveloping the Poolside in which all of the old buildings built during the 1960s/70s/ 80s would be replaced. Members approved the first phase named the Silom Wing in January 2017 and this was opened in October 2018.
The Silom Wing features a new children’s swimming pool, and changing rooms, a large shaded children’s playground with trampoline, an outdoor family seating and eating area. It also includes an air-conditioned family room with soft play area, a games room with table tennis and arcade games, a co-working lounge and two glass backed squash courts with generous viewing area, conveniently located next to the outside bar for post-match refreshments.
It is hoped to start work on Phase 2 before the end of 2019 subject to Member approval.
Whilst the Silom Wing is very much aimed at young families, Phase 2 will provide enhanced facilities for all those engaged in Activities, replacing all of the remaining old buildings from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. It will provide a spacious, state of the art fitness centre, attractive massage rooms, fashionable changing rooms, a purpose-built new kitchen and an airy, modern sports bar over the open-air Surawongse Sala, which can be open or air-conditioned as required.
