The 4,000-square-meter building includes three pools in a double-height space; a health club; a rooftop solarium; squash courts; a sauna; and a Turkish bath. Curved walls and edges dominate the minimalist and cool-toned pool hall, which is only sparingly punctuated by tropical plants and warm wood accents.
“The development of the spaces gives priority to transparency and the depth of field associated with very good use of daylight,” write the architects. “All the facades are open and accessible, and the various elements of the programme are organised in the form of light, coloured, rounded bubbles, floating on the project’s spatial continuum.”

An indoor-outdoor ramp connects the swimming pool to the rooftop solarium. Large pot plants complement the green roof on the oval-shaped wooden deck that overlooks views of the Eiffel Tower and provides glimpses of the swimming pool below. Curvaceous timber slats clad the exterior walls that “recall the circular movements on the surface of water and make reference to the circulation of energy and flows: the Feng Shui.”
