Located in Moravske Toplice, a spa town in north-eastern
Slovenia, the new pool annex of Spa Hotel Vivat (designed
by the same architect) is connected to the existing spa and
hotel. The new pool is located to the south of the existing
large pool hall, with direct access from existing pool area.
It comprises a swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a "black pool",
which is located in a separate area. The principal area is
a combined swimming/relaxation space with a matte ivory/sand
floor surface, which brings the blue "pixelated" pools to
the forefront. The shimmering blue mosaic of the pools is
contrasted by the warm colour of the ceiling. Large circular
ceiling "windows" provide abundant natural light during the
day, while at night, the starry light grid reflects in the
water surface. Semi-opaque windows also provide natural light
while at the same time minimizing the contact with exterior.
A separate area houses the "black pool". This pool contains
unrefined dark thermal water, praised for its beneficial properties
for the health. The pool is finished in black mosaic to enhance
the effect. The new pool hall represents a quieter space,
a place to retreat to from the large pool hall, to relax and
enjoy the quiet atmosphere.
