Kolezija swimming pool renovation

Ravnikar Potokar arhitekturni biro / 2015

Kolezija is the oldest swimming pool in Ljubljana, dating back to the year 1879 when the original pool was made of wood. It used to be primarily a place of social gatherings and began to be used for recreational swimming between the two world wars. After World War II a 50-metre pool was built. The complex was later abandoned and finally bought by the municipality of Ljubljana which issued a tender to renovate it. The new entrance building forms a square together with the adjacent Institute of Chemistry. The modern architectural style resembles some elements of the former swimming pool, with a horizontal plate over a well-lit ground floor which features vertical slats, also used in the fencing around the complex.
