In June 2018 Nordic Urban won a competition organized by the city of Oulu in Finland to develop its waterfront at Kiikeli, next to the city center. Nordic Urban is in the process of developing a partly floating spa, Allas Sea Pool Oulu, with a restaurant, terraces, community and conference rooms and wellness spaces. The investment is approximately 8 million euros. Oulu’s upcoming sea spa will be the northmost floating spa. Its year-round outdoor pools combined with different types of saunas, wellness services and events make it an exotic sight in an arctic setting. The total building area including the semi-warm spaces is 800 square meters. The floating area will be 2.300 sqm with three different kinds of pools (a warm water pool, a childrens’ pool and a sea water pool).
