Masterminded by Slangen + Koenis, this swimming pool complex is the highlight and the heart of the district’s new sports complex in northeast Maastricht, near Geusselt Castle.
Part of an ambitious modernization scheme, the project combines superb architecture with the highest environmental standards, implementing sustainable concepts and using cradle-to-cradle materials. Thanks to triple glazing, solar panels and geothermal energy, the power consumption could be curbed to one third of what one would expect for a building of this size and programmatic nature.
If you ever doubted that one man's stand against the oil and gas industry can make a difference, consider the case of Michael Bishop.
