Text description provided by the architects. The project involves an extensive refurbishment of the existing sports facilities and its extension.
The refurbishment required to conserve the old sports hall. The project includes two new separate buildings, and a new entrance hall that links the old and the new constructions.
The two new buildings are conceived as two regular prisms. One houses the indoor pool, its locker rooms, spa area and multipurpose rooms, and the other the Municipal Sports Department and a small auditorium.
By contrast, the entrance hall is a completely irregular distribution volume. It adapts its shape to successfully integrate new buildings with the existing one. It is cladded entirely in zinc sheet, to be read as a unitary element, with no difference between facades and roof.
The pool building prism is a glass volume on three sides, South, East and West. In summer, its lower part opens to the grassland, through guillotines windows 9 m. high. Above, the glasses are protected from the sunshade with horizontal aluminum louvers. The roof, formed by four large skylights, it can also be opened. On the North side are located the locker rooms and the spa area, with saunas, Jacuzzis, Scottish showers, cold water swimming pools, and a solarium overlooking the park. Below the pool, technical rooms (purification and air conditioning) and multi-purpose sports halls are located.
The prism which houses the offices of the Sport Department is formed on the ground floor by three volumes (auditorium, warehouse and the staircase) forming a concrete podium. Above this podium, the first office floor is solved with ventilated facades of high pressure laminated panels finished on wood on three sides. The fourth facade, facing south and with the best views of the garden, is a curtain wall protected from the sun with wooden louvers.
The project is completed with the refurbishing of the existing facilities. A new gym is located in the old swimming pool, opening one of its facades entirely to the garden. Under the gym, medical units and monitors offices replace the old technical rooms. All these rooms open to a new inner courtyard, which serves as connecting element with the new building, where also overlooks the new multipurpose rooms and the swimming pool lockers.
