A flying saucer has landed in a blank landscape.
That’s how the leisure and swimming centre “Les Thermes” in Strassen-Bertrange seems to look like. In 2004 the architects Hermann & Valentiny et Associés, Atelier d’Architecture et de Desing Jim Clemes and witry & witry architecture urbanisme won the architects competition with their high impact conceptual design. A truncated amethyst, characterized by a unimposing cover and a unique and special interior, was the spin doctor for this conceptual design. The interplay of extremes was focused. So a combination of open and closed areas, a cooperation of indoor and outdoor areas and a wide range for insight, perspectives and views can be found.
