Text description provided by the architects. The new design of the Fumel public swimming pool is based on the reorganization of the site in an effort to give it back its integrity and return it to its optimal use. To do so, the site is treated as a component of the natural landscape. The entrance is oriented on the south west angle, on the higher edge of the site, in direct relation with the access road.

Site Plan

This clarifies user access to the preexisting public equipment. With a playful geometry a wood fence limits the site and reveals its shape both integrating the landscape around it and fusing with the existing design. For example, the south fence, which is six meters above the main pool, becomes a balcony giving an overall view on the landscape. The design creates a natural rhythm as one descends towards the pools below.

The fence also houses the vital functions of the project. The mineral beaches are covered with a silver grey matte tiling, punctuated by large, colored, anamorphic shapes inviting the users to playfully find the correct viewpoint. The three pools are colored with a bright gradient to create a united water surface.

Section 2-2

The existing pool is reused to host the two new pools and the water treatment unit. This mineral space is separated from the landscape by greenery. The design elements of the site allow us to create a place rather than just a pool: a water park that anyone can use in his own way.

This project has been conceived with the landscape architects of Atelier Roberta.
