The new sports and leisure baths contain a competition-level sports pool, a learners' and a non-swimmers' pool, a landscaped bathing area for families with a recreational and a children's pool, a children's playground, catering and a sauna landscape. Thanks to the location of the plot in the beautiful surroundings of the water-meadow landscape along the River Fulda, the design connects the new building and its associated outdoor facilities with the water meadows and the river. In the area where a retaining wall once stood, a new "wall" has been built from which the roofs, the geometry of the ground plan and the outdoor facilities develop towards the river and gradually dissolve. Elements of the river and landscape are likewise drawn as far as possible into the building, allowing the interior and the exterior to merge into one another. Leading away from the generously proportioned entrance area, which also offers a wide view across the bathing landscape as far as the Fulda, are the routes to the bathing, sauna and spectators' area.
