The reconstruction of this sports and entertainment complex began in 2016 according to the project of the Moscow bureau UNK project and was completed in September 2019. All objects of the architectural and park ensemble "Luzhniki" are made in the same architectural style, therefore an important task of reconstruction is to preserve the characteristic appearance of the territory. The new building was designed in the general style of the Olympic Complex, but at the same time a unique and memorable image was created.
The Metropolis company performed the role of the general designer and was engaged in the development of design and working documentation.
The palace includes nine slides with a total length of 1.3 km and various water attractions, two swimming pools of 25 m and one of 50 m, as well as saunas, a salt wall, a fitness center, a boxing club and an interactive children's area.
Inside, the complex has been completely transformed. In addition to the three large pools (one of them is 50 meters, meeting the Olympic standard of the International Swimming Federation), several small ones have appeared, including those with a hydromassage. The palace has a surf center – a swimming pool with a slope to simulate a sea wave. The water attractions equipped in the complex have no analogues in Russia. In summer, visitors can sunbathe in the sun – the complex has a retractable roof. The pools are designed with the needs of children and people with limited mobility in mind: one of them is equipped with a lifting bottom and can change the depth for training kids and disabled people.
From an obsolete sports facility, the pool has turned into a modern aquatic center for Muscovites, while retaining all the opportunities for athletes to train. The new complex is ready to receive up to 10 thousand guests per day.
In addition, the complex has a modern spa center with several types of baths and saunas: there are Tyrolean and Mediterranean baths, as well as a salt cave. All conditions for holding sports competitions have been created in the palace; it is possible to put mobile stands for 250 seats, and broadcast the course of the competition on a large screen installed in the hall.
