Text description provided by the architects. The pool and spa complex is connected to the existing hotel via a communication axis comprising various public spaces, which leads along the new pools to the future hotel at the west edge of the site. On the south of the axis, the swimming pool hall contains indoor pools and adjoining saunas, the outdoor pools with the restaurant are located on the north side. Upper floor houses various healthcare and wellness programs.

The dynamic volume of the pool hall evokes the water drop shape, its smooth interior wooden sheath dispersing water reflections from the pool. The principal volume behind establishes hierarchy of the scheme; a wrapping of coloured expanded metal softens its rigid lines. To the north, the wide overhang spans the entire length of the scheme, protecting the poll support areas.

The pool platform, comprising the swimming, thermal and children's pools, is covered in warm terracotta tiles, while the pools' interior is clad in a pattern of three blue-green hues, echoing the water's dynamic.

Energy use represents an important feature of the project. The primary energy source, thermal water, is used in the pools, but it also provides energy for the building's other functions.
