Bellerive-Plage

Lausanne, Switzerland

The aquatic centre of Bellerive Beach, first opened in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1937, has seen a lot of swimmers in eight-plus decades! On sizzling summer days as many as 8000 visitors come for a swim and a play at the hugely popular destination.

 

The park is situated in a 70,000 m2 recreation area that include beaches, fields, sports, pools and other attractions. When built, the centre was an example of architectural functionalism. And, even through an expansion in 1964 by architect Marc Picard and a renovation almost 30 years later by architects Inès Lamunière and Patrick Devanthéry, the distinctive circular main building was preserved.

 

 

Bringing new life to an old favourite, Myrtha Pools recently renovated the aquatic areas in the park. Thanks to Myrtha’s exclusive RenovAction technology, Bellerive is now home to a new 8-lane Olympic-length swimming pool with a side area for springboard and platform diving. Refurbished with Myrtha’s modular stainless-steel structure, the new pool was installed in just 7 weeks, minimizing both time and cost of construction. RenovAction technology is also an environmental choice with a long lifecycle and offering considerable reductions in CO2 emissions compared to concrete pools.

 

An area of the pool to be preserved for historical reasons created a puzzle for the Myrtha engineering team. The problem was solved beautifully with an application of Myrtha’s Soft Floor that hid the underlying tiles and offered a perfect waterproof finish. This historic swimming pool in Lausanne will now serve many more decades of swimmers thanks to its Myrtha RenovAction upgrade!
