Old pool, new coloursGensingen indoor swimming pool
Around 30,000 visitors come to the Gensingen indoor swimming pool every year to swim laps, learn to swim or relax in the sauna.
In order for it to stay that way in the future, the small community between Mainz and Bad Kreuznach in Rhineland-Palatinate has now invested almost three million euros in the extensive modernisation and refurbishment of its ageing swimming pool.
The Gensingen indoor swimming pool, opened in 1972/1974, was built as a concrete structure. In the 1990s, the exposed aggregate concrete facades were provided with additional thermal insulation and trapezoidal sheets.
In addition to renewing windows and doors, the electrical systems and the water supply, the sanitary facilities have now also been adapted to current technical and hygienic standards.
New partitioning now allows bathers to enjoy more privacy. A separate changing area for people with disabilities including a stairlift in the swimming pool has also been accomplished.
The greatest challenge was to renew the outdated ventilation system, which was replaced by a space-optimised, elevated technical centre.
After being completely renovated, the Gensingen indoor swimming pool is now not only operatively connected, but also brilliantly designed. For the tile and ceiling design, the planners at BZM Architekten from Wiesbaden have developed a new colour concept that extends from the changing rooms to the sanitary area to the swimming pool.
The coloured acoustic Troldtekt panels on the suspended ceiling, made from the sustainable building materials wood and cement, fit perfectly into the overall concept. Warm colours in yellow, red and brown, some of which are also arranged in waves on the walls, contribute to the pleasant atmosphere.
