Initial situation – particular feature

The existing refurbishable indoor and outdoor pools at different locations are to be replaced by a new building of indoor and outdoor pools at a common location. Sensitive handling of the topography and the building masses was expected.

Location plot

Property is located on the edge of the center of Memmingen. The edge areas are partly affected by commercial and allotment gardens. About the property crosses the city creek.

Design idea

In view of the heterogeneous, urban environment, the design as a solitaire sets a sign that is appropriate for the situation. Concentration of the building mass on the northern and western part of the plot and formation of a largest and attractive, south-oriented outdoor area with a high quality of stay. The guyed roof construction in conjunction with a membrane roofing enabled a support-free and flexible design of the internal pool-water-landscape area.
