Swimming Pool

World Class Olympic

At the heart of this fitness centre is a swimming pool. The design uses contrasting shapes, materials and colours to powerful dynamic effect. The pool is divided into two main zones. The entrance area with a lower ceiling is dominated by the colour red which gives it a very sensual feel. With lofty arches and smooth white shapes floating above the blue water, the main area of the pool has an air of weightlessness. The lighting concept manages without any visible light sources: the interior illumination is diffuse and full of reflections.

Statement by the Jury

The high-contrast design of this swimming pool manages to combine sensuality, purity and weightlessness into an appealing sports venue.
