The famous architect Stockholm's Claesson Koivisto Rune has recently completed construction of a pool and spa facility, nestled in the idyllic landscape of southern Sweden. pool and spa from parquet boards
The project consists of two buildings, an outdoor pool for the summer and an underground spa with an indoor pool for the winter, the facilities were built next to a neoclassical mansion from 1796.
The structures are simple with gables and completely clad in white V-shaped tiles, thus emphasizing the clear forms and providing a sharp contrast to the green surroundings.
pool and spa from parquet boards
The idea to use this pattern was taken from the parquet floors seen in the adjacent mansion. The buildings appear to be raised on a gray platform, which has been laser-cut to reveal the parquet pattern. One of the two buildings serves as a covered outdoor kitchen and dining area, while the smaller and narrower space hides the staircase leading to the spa.
The architect has combined the water and the white tiles so that the turquoise tones alternate, due to the depth of the water in the pool and the impressive green landscape. The small ripples of the water give a new image to the bottom tiles, through refraction.
Beneath the surface of the ground, the spa is a sanctuary that has been constructed using four materials: wood, water, glass and tiles. The parquet pattern appears reinforced here as well. Dark glass walls are a distinctive addition and mark the location of the sauna and showers adjacent to the indoor pool. In this way, the architect creates an interesting modern interpretation of a classic motif, freeing the space from unnecessary ornaments and harmonizing it with the historical mansion without, however, representing its historical style in the new buildings.
