The Schwimmhalle Finckensteinallee was originally built in 1938. It is 50 meters long and 25 wide becoming the largest swimming pool of the kind at that time. By browsing the pictures I was astonished by the delicate touches done some time ago: large windows, sculptures, spacious locking rooms.

The pools we’ve worked on represent an incredible type of architecture, one that’s becoming increasingly rare today.Veauthier Meyer Architekten architects, Andreas Veauthier and Dr. Nils Meyer suggest. ”What particularly interests me about working on swimming pools is that they are public spaces. They’re big open rooms that play host to many people.“. The swimming pool re-opened to public on August 22 of 2014. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
