The arched walls also protect visitors from wind from all directions while they dry off from a cool dip. The 870 meters of wooden deck were built of Azobe timber in order to withstand the harsh salt water — Pettersson hopes the Sea Bath will be a permanent fixture in Kastrup’s developing waterfront, which has been up for debate for 50 years.

The Kastrup Sea Bath also created a new man-made beach with fresh sand, revitalizing what was formerly a shoddy industrial beach. An adjacent building houses lockers, changing rooms, and lavatories for swimmer’s convenience. The Kastrup Sea Bath combines both sculpture and utility to create a community destination on the waterfront that all can enjoy.
