Taastrup Svømmehal, Høje-Taastrup, Denmark

It is called “Taastrup Svømmehal” the new pool in Høje-Taastrup, a Danish municipality of 50,000 people, a few minutes from the center of Copenhagen.
The pool is built near the Taastrup Idræts Centre, a modern fitness and sport center, consisting of 12 football and tennis fields, restaurants and multi-purpose areas.

The pool was built to provide a facility that could easily host important events and growing number of users. An existing area established for swimming events consisted of 3 pools – one 25 meter and two smaller heated pools – was not enough to satisfy the new community requirements.
Besides the pools, it was decided to build a fourth facility in a nearby building offering new swimming spaces, extended opening hours, modern dressing rooms and a dedicated access.

The facility was built by Myrtha Pools in co-operation with DISH, a Myrtha dealer in Denmark, aimed at offering a functional facility:  a “turnkey” swimming arena accessible to the most important local swimmers.

Besides the pool, the project includes a building, a ventilation and water treatment plant, as well as the dressing rooms and common spaces designed for offices and restaurants.

The project provides for functional, but at the same time, environmental-friendly areas: the conditioning and water treatment plant provides highly effective ventilation while cutting water and energy consumptions to the bare minimum.

A brand new swimming facility, high performance and hi-tech, as well, makes the Høje-Taastrup community proud and satisfied: Michael Ziegler, the city major, defined Taastrup Svømmehal as an ambitious project:  “Thanks to the new swimming facility – he supported – better conditions will be offered to our sport clubs, schools and swimmers in general. The new pool does not only provide for a wider space, but welcomes a wider target as well, thanks to its mobile bottom and walls. The swimming facility couldn’t be better”.

A new sport, fitness, health and gathering center: the ideal facility to practice athletic disciplines while enjoying time together.

During the short-course European swimming championships in 2017, at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, the Taastrup Svømmehal facility was visited by many European architect delegations deeply interested in the project.
