Pool İzmir, Izmir

Because of its easily accessible location, the building, which is passed by quite a lot of people, has the purpose of attracting people\’s interest, curiosity, and arousing interest in water sports. The project has a unique facade design with gabion walls filled with glass rocks, a waste material in glass production. This shell also offers solar control on the southern and western fronts. The light effect and light shadow games created by filtering light from the shell into the interior, the position, size and randomness of the gaps in the building shell, will make the experience of the structure unique. It was our first goal to reach the unrepeatable and unimaginable atmosphere created by the light and reflections that seeped out of the shell.
