Hamburg 2007

In front of the green area „Schwanenwik“ at the Außenalster, Hamburg, a swimming pool will be erected on the site of the former Baths Hohenfelde, offering a unique view on the Außenalster while swimming. The structure consists of a 100-meter-long pool and a wooden terrace offering visitors space to relax and sunbathe. On the side, a one-storey structure will house the technical devices and systems, sanitary facilities and a small gastronomy. The horizontal character of the structure will not block the view on the Außenalster but will increase the general benefits of the green area.
