We are in Uster, Switzerland, in the third city of Zurich canton, where Myrtha Pools designed an extraordinary 50m pool at Hallenbad Buchholz Sports Center.
After 30 years of disuse, the architecture study K&L Architekten AG completed the ambitious refurbishment project re-designing the area to fit better with community needs and requirements.
The Hallenbad Buchholz crown jewel is a unique indoor pool: the first 50m pool Myrtha Pools completed in Switzerland.
The outstanding distinctive feature of this Myrtha pool is an extraordinary “split-in-two” movable bulkhead, FINA approved, able to turn the pool into a multipurpose aquatic area and give the chance to have more configurations than what is possible with the usual boom: 10 50m lanes, 20 25m lanes or 15 lanes total of which 10 25m length and 5 50m length.
The 50m pool signed by Myrtha makes this state-of-the-art sport venue a real benchmark for all swimming-lovers and for the athletic clubs. In fact, the Schwimm Club Uster Wallisellen –one of the most important swimming club of Switzerland– chose the Hallenbad Buchholz for its training sessions. The club is in charge of the training of the most promising athletes in co-operation with the national swimming federation and has among its members many famous swim-stars.
Thanks to its breakthrough technology and to the highest design and production standard, Myrtha Pools is the undisputed Global Industry leader of major international swimming competitions. At all those occasions, Myrtha Pools designed and completed facilities, both permanent and temporary such as for the Rio Olympic Games 2016, and for the latest Swimming World Championship (25m) in Windsor.
Myrtha is not only the undisputed Global Industry Leader of international swimming competitions, it is more and more the choice for projects that require problem solving engineering. This allows Myrtha to incorporate it’s State of the Art technologies of design and production.
