Atelier RK : Piscine de Salviac

Ah, it's hot in the Lot (46)! And what better than a little dip to cool off in hot weather? A pleasure of which the inhabitants of Salviac were until then private, their municipal swimming pool having been closed for some time for dilapidation. It was without counting on the intervention of Atelier RK which rehabilitates the basins of the 1960s by giving them a new lease of life!

Located in the sports plain, near the city center and the campsite, the pool of Salviac had everything to become the essential place of the town. Only abandoned, the municipality was forced to close. A crucial lack in everyday life of this sunny city which belongs to the past now.


The order included the renovation of the large 250 square meter pool, the small 100 square meters and landscaped beaches and spaces as well as the construction of new locker rooms and the rehabilitation of old ones into technical rooms.

Widely frequented by younger generations, the project had to have a playful identity, pleasing to the eye of children. Thus, the designers imagine two sets facing each other, on both sides of the water, whose silhouettes and two-sided roofs - decorated with photovoltaic panels - evoke the simplified drawings of homes by toddlers. Wooden bards placed vertically, they are also surrounded by red metal elements. Signage in contrasting tones with the blue of the water found at the entrance of the complex whose wobbly fences also refer to the features of the children.

Something to refresh the inhabitants of Salviac!

The project is selected for the ADC Awards 2019 in the Leisure category
