Les Bains des Docks :Jean Nouvel

The pritzker prize wining 2008 - French architect (and my favorite one) Jean Nouvel designed the aquatic complex Les Bains des Docks, that recently opened, in the historical Port of Le Havre.

The concept of the 5000 square meter, is inspired by the Roman thermal baths . .
Although the main “color” of the complex is white, each section’s distinct atmosphere and hue is created by flowing water curtains, color walls, and various textures and surface treatments

A special thinking was desdicated to creat "private space" for specific users.
it provides vast activities beside the lap pool-children's pool-whirlpools, such as Saunas, a hammam, cold and hot baths, and a spa area with hydro-massage and aquagym areas.
