The building has the form of a series of waves, created by curved laminated wooden beams which constitute the roof of the pool and the entrance hall. Parallel to the street, large windows provide an important energy contribution where light entering is filtered by a lattice in order to prevent a clear view. Its volumetric form corresponds to a giant wave which adapts to the interior functionality and terminates with its upper part creating a porch over the ground floor entrance square and coffee shop.
