July 12, 2018
This week in the German city of Essen, a solemn ceremony of awarding the best design projects according to the international Red Dot Design Award was held. The award in the category Interior Architecture and Interior Design was received by the Russian studio VOX Architects with the World Class Olimpiyskiy pool project.
Olimpiyskiy became the third implemented project of the World Class chain by VOX Architects. The main space of the club is occupied by a swimming pool. In accordance with the developed concept, the design was based on powerful dynamics and a strong contrast of shapes, colors and materials.
The reconstruction was completed in just two months. The architectural forms were rethought in the spirit of futurism: the beams received plastic expressiveness and acquired clear forms. The pool is divided into two parts: the entrance group with an overhanging ceiling is decorated in a rich red palette, and the outdoor swimming area is implemented with smooth shapes and a dominant white tint. The space was filled with light, due to which it visually began to appear larger.
