The new Faaborg Harbour Bath and Blue Base at the southern end of Fyn in Denmark branches out into the sea and creates different swimming areas between the piers. Danish studio JDSA based the project on the idea of bathing in the sea, close to the elements. The development has changing rooms, a sauna and a 3,230 square foot meeting point.
The project is comprised of several branching piers connected with ramps and stairs that create different ambiances and environments for visitors to enjoy. Different functions define every pier on the finger-plan, while open basins are connected with four bridges of different width and length. Each of the bridges offers a unique promenade and way of getting in the water. Wooden piers form ramps, stairs, and small pool areas for children.
The new harbor bath offers the town of Faaborg a new public space and redefines its waterfront, while attracting visitors and inviting locals to enjoy the water.
