Diamond Park Waterpark, Gabala, Azerbaijan: The Diamond Park waterpark will be completed in the spring of 2017. Consisting of a waterpark and amazing entrance area, this 96,356 square foot (8,956 square meter) structure is truly one of a kind. At 56,100 square feet (5,214 square meters), it will be the largest waterpark in Azerbaijan. The enclosure measures 150’ (45.75m) by 362’-9” (110.72m) with an arched roof reaching 60 feet (18 meters) high at its peak and strikingly unique diamond-patterned sidewalls. The curved roof includes 30 operable roof panels that open seamlessly in warm, sunny weather, blending the huge indoor waterpark with the open skies of the great outdoors and amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Attached at one end is a slide tower measuring 49’-6” (15m) x 26’-3” (8m) and rising to a height of 77’ (23.3m), contributing another 1,300 square feet (120.77 square meters) to this already impressive structure.
Adding to the geometric patterned glass architecture, OpenAire created an entrance structure for the park that is also unprecedented.
