Comprised of two timber stair formations atop of a floating concrete platform, the ‘flying carpet’ functions as a viewing platform and outdoor lounge. Swimming enclosures of different depths lie on the platform’s inner edge, while the outer edge delineates swimming lanes in the surrounding deep waters. Stair formations rise from the platform, creating staggered seating at different levels. Two diving platforms also extend from the main stairs. The unusual name refers to the tip of the Z-shaped structure that shoots seven-metres above the water surface, evoking the dynamism of the mythological carpet. At this westerly point, visitors are rewarded with views of Hasle harbour, the sea, as well the formidable sunsets.
I come down here on days when I feel really tired and washed out and just empty my mind. I guess you could call it meditation; I can relax and feel completely well again.Ole Folkmann, Bather
Hasle Harbour Baths are connected to shore by a 25 metre floating promenade that leads to a sauna, bathrooms and an outdoor changing area. To the south of this is a jetty catering for a variety of water sports. The wooden stairs, promenade and outdoor furniture is composed of FSC-certified Azobé timber, selected for its aesthetic qualities as well as its ability to withstand the harsh marine environment.
