ORIGINALLY

Like many seaside resorts, Deauville has based its reputation on the practice of sea baths with curative effects. Several hydrotherapy establishments have followed one another in Deauville from 1860, when the city emerged from the ground. In 1921, the Parisian architect Charles Adda (1873-1938) was the winner of a competition organized by the municipality of Deauville to replace the establishment of the baths then very degraded. Innovative, his project entitled " Pompeii baths Is inspired by the models of Antiquity while registering in modernity with clean lines and the use of concrete. An important decoration of mosaics breaks the monotony of the concrete. 250 cabins, 50 of which luxurious, organized in two districts, are built. A network of porticoed galleries, sweat and massage rooms, a hammam, an American bar, a hair salon and shops complete the package. Of low and horizontal composition, the Pompeian baths free the horizon from the casino terrace. The project as soon as adopted was built and then inaugurated on July 5, 1924, in the presence of Denise Gray. This day there she is disguised as Ondine, and bathes in the basin of the Cour des Bains.
