VERDICT

This renovation has provided a genuine improvement on the existing pool, both at technological and at architectural level. It defines a very valid path to follow in similar cases where the goal is to improve sustainability, user comfort and water quality.

DESCRIPTION

This comprehensive renovation operation has improved the pool shell, the building envelope and the equipment. The former shell leaked, so it has been used as formwork for a new, less deep one. The new enclosure addresses the problems of poor isolation of the old one. The disinfection equipment has been replaced with a combination of salt electrolysis and UV, and the HVAC system has also been updated and now it benefits from heat recovery.
