Like swimming in nature’s own pool

East of Trollhättan you can dive into the water at the newly renovated Lunnevibadet swimming baths with its bright and natural design. Troldtekt acoustic ceilings ensure comfortable sound levels for users of the swimming pools.

Lunnevibadet is situated close to Grästorp Camping in the town of Grästorp in the county of Västra Götalands in Sweden.

In 2018, work started on renovating and also developing the entire complex. It has been given a new roof, new cladding has been fitted to the walls inside the swimming baths, a new play area has been built as well as a children’s pool, the water levels have been raised, the existing pools have been optimised, and the heating and water purification systems have been modernised.

The Swedish consultancy We Group specialises in swimming pools, and has been involved from the very outset and right through to completion, assuming responsibility for design, construction management and procurement.

Lots of light and a natural feel

At the new Lunnevibadet, the focus has been on drawing the daylight inside through large window sections, where the light is again reflected by the floor tiles. The walls have been clad with wooden profiles to support the feeling of being surrounded by nature.

The ceilings are wave-shaped, and clad with white Troldtekt acoustic panels. This ensures comfortable acoustics, which is vital in swimming pools where there are often lots of people in an enclosed space. The acoustic panels absorb all the noises which would otherwise reverberate between the hard surfaces in the large pool room.
