“Good swimming centres have to function effectively and have a welcoming atmosphere,” says Ernst Ulrich Tillmanns, CEO of architects 4a Architekten.
One way of achieving this is by using ceiling panels made of natural materials like wood, which ensure pleasant acoustics. And different areas can be highlighted using light and colour.
A successful example of this is the Vitalbad Kusel swimming centre and leisure park, where Troldtekt acoustic ceiling panels are used in a number of custom colours to create a welcoming atmosphere. The project has been recognised with an ICONIC Award 2021.
