The volume is characterized as an urban architecture, open to a specific relationship with the sorroundings, against the logic of sports building seen as ubiquitous object, placeable in each site.
The architectural theme is expressed by treating the compact compact block of the brown Klinker (84 x 42 x 9 meters ) through a sequence of excavatied fronts, that changing his character in relations beetween the interior spaces and the different conditions of external reference.
This deep cuts crossing the volume bringing the light inside the pool spaces, building precise visual relationships between the differents parts of the spaces.
Between the cuts of the west side there are the two staircases that connect the locker room between the public entrance on the south side of the swimmig pool placed on north aprt of the complex.
