Tøyenbadet

Tøyenbadet in Oslo is Norway's busiest indoor swimming facility.[1] Situated in Helgesens Gate 90,[2] it was designed by architect Gert Walter Thuesen.[3] It was built in 1976 and contains indoor and outdoor swimming pools.[4] It was closed for refurbishment in spring 2007 and reopened in autumn 2008, six months later than planned.[5] Within months of this refurbishment the facility was experiencing water leakage problems.[1]
