The mother of all Copenhagen's open-air swimming pools, the Bellahøj Pool, has had a face-lift. In connection with an urban renewal scheme, the 50-year-old swimming pool underwent major renovation and extension. It now provides local community swimming facilities and is also suitable for large swimming meets and competitions.
The architects' design takes as its starting point the Bellahøj Park and the housing scheme Bellahøjhusene, which surround the present swimming pool, thus ensuring that the new facility would echo the urban context and landscape features. The open-air facility has emerged as a modelled landscape subdivided into a series of smaller spaces. A roof surface spans across the modelled landscape and covers the indoor pools. The roof gives a strong horizontal emphasis to the new facility, which reinforces the presence of the Bellahøj Park and provides a respectful contrast to the Bellahøj houses.
