The pool is housed in a pavilion located in a park close to a school and a community center. The building consists of various convex and concave shell areas which establish a strong connection with the surrounding landscape. The volume of the pool hall is enveloped in insulating OKALUX K glass panels which, thanks to special capillary tubes inserted in the cavity of the panels, allow for an optimal and diffuse distribution of light. A composition of transparent, translucent and opaque elements gives the surrounding building shell transparency and openness where desired while at the same time protecting other areas from views from the outside.

The swimming hall is column-free and includes a 50-meter-long water slide. The gallery on the first floor provides views of the swimming basins in the hall and access to the sun terrace. It also features a sauna with its own outer area and a round roof opening with a view of the sky.
