The 5000 square metre complex comprises 12 pools, several leisure pools, a sauna, hammam, spa and a fitness room. The interior is covered in white tiles, the brightly-coloured foam blocks forms the children’s play area.  

“It is a paradox, a building on a harbour scale, inspiring simplicity and robustness, but which betrays its complexity as soon as one penetrates its volumes,” says Nouvel. “One enters a universe of whiteness and depths.”
