Hanmer Springs
+ Info
Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa is a multi-million dollar, award-winning establishment that attracts thousands of visitors annually. RMM has a long-standing relationship with the pools, which began with the design of an overall master plan for the resort in the 1990s.  The staged roll-out of this master plan has seen us have continued involvement in developing their facilities ever since.

For Hanmer Springs, a design narrative was established to showcase and portray the native flora and fauna local to the area, creating a uniquely ‘South Island’ spa experience. The combination of both hard and soft materials provides an appropriate range of tones and textures that are particular to the alpine context.

Features of the development over the years have included therapeutic pools, sulphur pools, water slides, freshwater pool and hydrology pools, all of which has been designed with careful consideration of the landscape context.

Our most recent involvement has been the design, detailed documentation and construction observation of the Cascade Pools and the Conical Thrill waterslide installation. A feature of the construction of the Cascade Pools was the innovative spatial arrangement planning and construction techniques to prevent impact on the root zones of historic and iconic Redwood trees that border the pools.
