Data

Overall Project Time:

Execution Period:
approx. 4 Months

Scope of work

  • Extraordinary, curved, diamond-shaped, glass roof construction.
  • Welded stainless steel profiles and design glass.
  • Highly demanding comfort, aesthetic and security standards.

Innovations / Challenges

  • Rectangular glass roof with dimensions of 25.8 m x 9.6 m and approximately 10 cm higher in the middle than at the edges.
  • Special stainless steel was used for the load-bearing structure - consisting of curved, intersecting hollow triangular profiles - for the roofing of this indoor swimming pool.
  • Another special feature of the building is that in summer a 20 cm deep pool is created on the roof. In winter the roof is normally covered with snow.
