Text description provided by the architects. The architectural concept was adapted to the narrow qualities of the land and the proximity of the river Sava. The volume has been treated as a closed element to the north and west, and completely open to the south and east by the glass facade which connects the building with the surrounding landscape.

The project is divided into two parts that work independently, but are connected in summer season, emphasizing greater flexibility in the use of the complex. Great attention has been given to disabled people and the elderly in terms of accessibility.

The first part is the indoor pools to which is accessed by the new plaza on the west side of the field. In the lobby is located the access to the offices and general direction and the reception. After the access control, there is the locker area, showers and bathrooms up to the pools area.

The interior of the complex is divided into several pools: a pool for competitions (25x50m) on the access floor level, going upstairs through the stands that lead to the upper floor where the pool for children is located and another swimming pool which enjoys vistas towards the river Sava nearby. Upstairs is also found the bar which can be accessed from the lobby and through the main stairs and lift. Also there are the gym, sauna, solariums, etc. All the inner bathing areas are communicated both visually and physically to the outdoor pools.
