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.
