Swimming pools in Jesús

Josep Camps y Olga Felip

Description Technical file

The way architecture is made in this interesting sports fit-out project allows for exploring the urban limit conditions that its location possesses.
Situated on the outskirts of the municipality, bordering the road that links Jesús with Roquetes, between the Ebro Canal and the Valle Cervera Ravine, the swimming pools acquire the condition of a limit.
One of the project’s goals is to give the swimming pools a space sheltered from the road and the wind, with views of the canal and the future sports zone, as well as a good orientation that will allow its use to be optimised. As a consequence of this, the building is a lineal development between the road and the swimming pools, configuring the backdrop for the outdoor activities space and articulating the access spaces at its ends.
The limits between interior and exterior space have been explored by means of an in-situ concrete structure and a façade system based on metallic profiles. There are separation spaces between these two construction elements: porches, patios, shade… interstices of ambiguity that dilute and blur the indoor-outdoor relationship.
The facility is accessed from a public space in the foreground that widens the pavement of this road, acting as a great vestibule for the complex. Starting in the access porch, on one side is the bar, which looks towards the future athletics track. The vestibule is on the other side, framing the view towards the swimming pools. The external area is configured as a sequence of shaded spaces that interlink the three functional pieces –bar, changing rooms and hall—and accompany the user along the different routes through the building.
