From the architect. The indoor and outdoor swimming pool facility “Drautalperle” is located in Spittal/Drau in northern part of the Austrian region of Carinthia.The project came out of an international competition in 2006, covering the topics of planning, building and financing.

Central topic of the design was the fusion between inside room and outside landscape, what has been maintained by placing big windows resembling oxygen bubbles in water. By this means it was possible to break up the usually rigid partition between indoor and outdoor spaces.On the inside there is on 7.500 m² a big variety of possibilities to be active in the water, like two competition pools, an adventure pool with a black hole water slide (with music and light show), a huge recreational spa area, with sauna, steam bath and Jacuzzi, furthermore there is a restaurant and shops like barber or massage therapist.The range of possibilities being active is well rounded by playgrounds and a large pool on the outside, where you have an amazing view on the mountain landscape of the area.
