From the architect. The Olgiata Sporting Club is located inside the woods of a garden city at the border of Rome, Italy

The building is made up of three different pavilions connected to each other. The central one is the administrative center and contains the entrance, where the main staircase and the connections are. Through it the visitor can access the locker rooms at the lower level and then the two pavilions.

South pavilion contains gyms, North pavilion contains swimming pools. The paths to reach the different areas are strictly separated.
