Vienna Indoor Swimming Pool
- questioning and reconstruction of the original concept of Roland Rainer, general renovation and integration of the latest technology
- restore and modernize the original concept
- according to the present
How can a historical monument on the one hand be restored to its original character and, on the other hand, be brought up to date with the latest technology in order to meet the requirements of a modern swimming pool?
The aim and the starting point of the renovation lay in the modernization and renewal of the Wiener Stadthallenbad according to technical and operational standards, while at the same time preserving and reconstructing the originally intended character from 1974.
The imperceptibly existing design principle, the visual links between inside and outside created throughout the entire building,
have been transformed into the present. The swimming pool now offers the latest pool water technology, air quality, hygiene and comfort. New and old experience a homogeneous interlinking and form today's appearance.
The Wiener Stadthallenbad is again an important meeting place and an important cultural asset. Past - present - future.
