Schlosssbad in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz, Germany

published in sb magazine 3/2023

The Schlossbad has been built on the plots of the old outdoor pool and replaces the rural district’s former indoor pool that was used particularly by schools and clubs. The special challenge of the project was the confined built-up location of the existing outdoor pool site, to which a huge programme of rooms was to be added. The design by Dietzer Architekten integrates the existing facilities and the nearby palace pond (Schlossweiher).

The sauna is designed as a scenic area of cubes and spaces in between. Although outwardly similar, each interior has been designed with its own unique theme borrowed from the locality. The castle pond sauna is a special highlight as a bio and gentle sauna. As a physical focus, it captures the natural surroundings of the castle pond in the floor-to-ceiling panoramic window.
