The general figure of the scheme consists of a uniform strip that winds around the elliptical volume of the swimming pools hall to contain the planted solarium, which faces due south. The building is largely glazed around its base to allow in-depth views of the swimming pools hall, with the upper part developed like a hardscaped strip of ribbed concrete. The strip that winds around the swimming pools hall perfo rms an urban link function. It adapts to the topography of the site and controls the entrances and the transpa rent and opaque elements , while containing all the facility’s ancillary and service areas. The scheme is on two levels , with an upper entrance from the north esplanade that looks down onto the swimming pools hall below , providing a view of the water sport and leisure activities. The solarium is organised in planted tiers like a cascade of greenery running alongside the swimming pools hall. The swimming pools hall is designed as a brightly-lit, expanded spatial continuum that is largely open to the exterior on the west and especially on the south onto the hardscaped and planted solariums.
