Leppävaara swimming hall and lido

Leppävaara swimming hall, located in Espoo, was built in 1969 and designed by architect Osmo Lappo. The renovation and extension of the swimming hall began in the end of 2013 and the swimming hall was opened for public in January 2016. In addition to the renovation of the building, a new lido, sports fields and a playground were built next to the swimming hall.

The renovation and extension of Leppävaara swimming hall were designed by Pöyry. The aim of the project was to maintain and highlight the original architecture as much as possible. The large extension was designed to match the existing building and the materials were chosen accordingly.

We photographed the interiors of the swimming hall last year for Pöyry. This summer we went back to photograph the building and the outdoor areas for Muotolevy whose façade panels were used in the building.

Swimming pool area by Konkret Architects

We photographed this renovated swimming pool area for Konkret Architects. The pool is located on the top floor of an office building in Helsinki’s Siltasaari and it’s a part of a Sauna2 rental space for parties and events. 

The spacious pool surely makes the room a hit among the guests but the space itself is also very enjoyable. The shape of the room is diverse and interesting and the materials used in the space are beautiful. The vivid concrete and the wall tiles contrast nicely with the warm wood of the ceiling and the different shades of grey create a calm and relaxing atmosphere.
