The dynamic volume of the pool hall evokes the water drop shape, its smooth interior wooden sheath dispersing water reflections from the pool. The principal volume behind establishes hierarchy of the scheme; a wrapping of coloured expanded metal softens its rigid lines. To the north, the wide overhang spans the entire length of the scheme, protecting the poll support areas. The pool platform, comprising the swimming, thermal and children’s pools, is covered in warm terracotta tiles, while the pools’ interior is clad in a pattern of three blue-green hues, echoing the water’s dynamic.

Energy use represents an important feature of the project. The primary energy source, thermal water, is used in the pools, but it also provides energy for the building’s other functions.
