The fundamental guideline for the design of the interior was to produce a sensation of a constant connection to the natural landscape. The main load-bearing structure of the individual roof elements has been shifted into building's interior. The perimeter glass façade contiguously envelops the building and ensures uninterrupted contact with the surrounding landscape. The swimming pool building's volume is divided into several smaller roof segments whose respective levels separate them from one another, yet they are still linked in a unified structural system.
