The first indoor swimming pool in modular timber construction is being built in Stuttgart and 4a Architekten are on board as design partners. The indoor swimming pool is designed as a temporary and deconstructable building and is to be built at several locations. This innovative planning approach has convinced the building department of the city of Stuttgart in the tendering process and awarded the contract to POOL out of the BOX GmbH as general contractor.

For 4a Architekten, it is an exciting task to transfer the design, functional and technical requirements of a swimming pool to a modular construction concept. "We see great opportunities in integrating topics such as prefabrication and the circular economy into swimming pool constructions," says Ulle Tillmanns, Managing Partner of 4a Architekten, "and we look forward to working with an experienced team to realize this challenging construction task."
