Opened on the 15th of September 2013, the F.3 Fellbach Aquatic Centre is a recreational center that has something to offer to the entire family with combined baths that were separated into three areas: the sports section with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, the adventure pool and the sauna world.
The project was designed by 4a Architekten with a dynamic shape that blends into the landscape while also integrating elements specific to the region which is the western edge of Fellbach, near Kappelberg, a well-known vineyard region.
The linear vineyard structure was transported into the site so that the fields form the basis for the terrain’s development, defining the pool alignment, sun decks, play areas, saunas and the tree rows outside. All of these are aligned toward the south in the longitudinal side to create shaded and sunny areas and to attract visitors from a distance.
The entrance area leads to the lobby and the spacious bathing hall with glazed surfaces to create maximum transparency. The swimming pool inside has 25 meters in length and there is another pool outside with a 50 meter length so give swimmers extensive room to practice.
