Second place went to the project by Tomasz Marciniewicz, Zuzanna Szpocińska, Jerzy Grochulski, Ewelina Czerwińska. The designers received a prize of 25 thousand zlotys.

As we read in the justification of the jury:

In the design of the study part, attention is drawn to the proper inclusion of various sports and recreational, leisure and educational functions in the surrounding landscape, with a clear separation of the zone of interconnected off-road sports facilities. In the implementation part - highlighted and interestingly organized zone of the entrance to the building. The building itself aptly defines the meaning and style of the new sports building in Piaseczno, although its scale is questionable. Modesty and simplicity of the materials and form used, the use of wood as a finishing material for the facade and interiors results in a building favorable to users, pleasant to look at and encouraging relaxation, but also active spending of time. The proposed solutions allow to expect a beautiful play of light in the interiors of varying heights, adapted to the different functional program.

However, the jury's doubts were raised by the lack of independent use of the sauna area, long access to it and crossing movements.

Third place - intimate spaces of the public swimming pool

The third prize went to the team of Jaroslaw Kozikowski, Adrian Kozikowski, Michal Bala, Bartosz Bochyinski. The authors also received a cash prize of 20 thousand zlotys. The work won the jury's appreciation for the not trivial shaping of the building's body and the consistent use of materials forming both its facades and individual interiors. The masses are clearly linked to the spatial arrangement of the interiors.

The Competition Jury justified its decision this way:

The work is distinguished by the building's distinctive carving. Each of the blocks forming it contains one of the functions of the pool which gives a sense of intimacy both in each interior and in the scope of the entire building. The building is a clear and appropriate response to the difficult context of the site, nevertheless, the Court feels that it is located too close to Mazurska Street, and the corner from Mazurska and Chyliczkowska Streets is also inappropriately accentuated. [...]

The complicated solid solution, however, entailed some limitations: among others, too small saunarium zone, restrictions on accessibility for the disabled, among others, to the first floor of the grandstand.
