The view of the enchanting curves of the Bohemian Central Mountains from the sloping plot, the terrain fault from the removed swimming hall and the adjacent park together with different space requirements of individual facilities and the effort to bring sunlight into the pool hall, form a unique mix of substances, which are significantly reflected in the final form of the building. The significant slope of the roof surface corresponding with the slope of the surrounding terrain provides the necessary clear height for the pool hall, which opens fully to the south. The orientation of the hall to the south allows the low winter sun to be allowed in. In summer, the interior is protected by sufficient roof overhang. The contrast between the exterior and the interior is so strong that even the glass shell itself and one side of the pools have rippled due to the differences between the two worlds. In the northern part of the building there is a technical rooms, cloakrooms and sauna world.
