Heracles Swimming Pool

A pool for a neighbourhood of Montpellier, with a strict minimum program on a slopped plot invited to use the pre-existing topography and privilege the visual and formal start value of the volumes containing the pools.

While the wooden facade and glass surface soil stand the large volumes of the pools and the entrance hall, the recovery of the local stone as cladding of the facade of the dressing rooms volume represents a continuity of the place while natural light floods the spaces of the pools through the facades and large skylights, dressing rooms are illuminated through hoc perforation.
