Our design for the new addition to Herning Svømmehal has been awarded 1st prize in a competition. When the building is completed Herning Svømmehal will be the largest swim center in Denmark.
The existing building shows a significant and wavy building profile, which we want the new building to relate to. The new addition shows a simple and elegant building, which main design element will be a light wavy roof which creates many different and intimate spaces both inside and outside.
The wavy roof continues the idiom of the existing architecture and also reflects the inside use of the building, by showing a clear reference to the swimming world – from the light waves to the dynamic swim strokes.
