Synthesis of the case study

Kastrup Sea Bath is one of many architectural gems of the Orestad region of Copenhagen. Conceived as a fully accessible outdoor swimming facility, Kastrup Sea Bath transformed an overlooked brownfield site into one of the most enchanting, recognisable and popular leisure destinations in Denmark. This is an architectural pearl and a truly magical place that offers good swimming opportunities with protection against the wind. Facilities include changing rooms with showers and lockers. For those interested in taking the plunge, there are 3 as well as 5 metre diving boards on the platform. At night, spotlights embedded in the wooden deck create a beautiful indirect lighting effect at the Sea Baths.
