The layout of this beautiful modernist building was based on an innovative concept: to combine different types of leisure infrastructure – in this case a swimming pool and a theatre – under the same roof. The grand staircase with a curtain wall was once the piece de résistance of this sublime architectural jewel. The ambitious plan however turned out to be less than succesfull; the pool/ theatre had to close, leaving this valuabe part of architectural heritage to decay.
Abandoned swimming pool dating back to the WW1 era. The pool originally had a steel and glass roof – which was later replaced by a modern flat roof. The statue and fine details in the interior architecture still remind us of the original pré-1920 architectural grandeur.
