The design is the interplay between the natural vegetation and the built environment. Existing pool Kolezija was always a park with trees. The new architecture adapts to this dialogue in order to remain as far as possible neutral and reserved to an existing one. The building is designed in a low, horizontal volume with intermediate atriums which descend to the basement and allow light penetration in the service of the resort. Atriums which have different contents establish a dialogue with the main green areas. The facility is integrated with greenery. It creates the harmony between the old and new, between the green and built.
