‘Piscine du Fort’ is Mikou Design Studio‘s winning design for a public swimming pool just outside of the Paris city center. The structure has been designed to be completely enclosed, but open plan with numerous overhead skylights, and plenty of large windows keep the interior bright and airy. A clean, white and modern interior provides an atmosphere of clarity, while bringing a nice contrast to the more organic exterior aesthetic.

The building is enveloped by a slatted wood facade that both reduces the mass of the rectangular structure and makes the building appear as an extension of its grassy site. The roof is topped off with a deck and plenty grassy spots for visitors to sunbathe and relax.
