From the architect. Our design scheme emphasizes the roof as a determinant element of the building with an elliptical “beach” border of wood laths which is accessible via a ramp that runs along the swimming pools hall.

The swimming pool hall is designed in a spirit of fluidity and openness with natural light coming both from the facade and the « glass carpets » on the roof. The interior and planted solarium is covered with a mobile glass roof which provides natural ventilation during summer time.

The « glass carpets » on the roof provide natural day light and open views onto the sky. Double high circulation from the changing room to the swimming pool.

The external walls are faced with undulating golden wooden slats that recall the circular movements on the surface of water and make reference to the circulation of energy and flows : the Feng Shui.

I am afraid this is going to age badly, it feels to me like people in the future are going to refer to it as a building "of the 2010's" the same way we might today say depreciatively about a building that it is "of the 70's".
To say it in another way, here the fixed shapes of the architecture seem to have been taken from the temporary, more agile and more grotesque shapes of interior design. I am afraid its beauty is going to be short lived.
