Sky and pools are mirrored in the running water. The wet glazing of the façades glitters in shades of blue, suggesting the shimmering light of the sea. This is a place where the sea is very close. The 50-metre pool, dating from 1967, is one of Sweden’s fastest.
The facilities were completely re-apparelled for the Swedish swimming championships in summer 2006, with water setting the theme of both architecture and landscaping.
The sea is glimpsed through slits in the building, and the tapering media tower alludes to the city’s distinctive water tower. A wet-through world indeed.
