Discover This Luxury Pool In A Converted Church! 5th August 2016
If there’s one place to look to for inspiration for your swimming pool designs, it’s the luxury pool at Repton Park in Redbridge in London which has been built inside a converted church.
There’s really nothing quite like taking a dip in a 25m pool surrounded by amazing arched windows and stained glass, is there? If you’re planning on having an indoor swimming pool installed, adding some stained glass here and there could actually be a lovely idea, especially if you’re going to be using the pool for relaxation rather than intense swimming practice. There’s something so peaceful about stained glass, isn’t there?
We’re also particularly impressed by the stunning stone pillars, no doubt an original feature of the church that have been left behind to create a truly beautiful space for a swimming pool. If you’re planning on having part of your house converted, adding in some pillars could also be a great idea if you want a very dramatic look.
The church conversion itself also saw a shower included near the altar, with a hot tub just in front of it and a steam room to the left. But that’s not all – the old confessional box has also been transformed into a sauna… making us really want to pay Repton Park a visit!
Other swimming pools in London that might inspire you include the one to be found in The Berkeley Hotel which has a retractable roof, or the one at the Canary Riverside club which has an incredible view of the Thames. Why not do a London tour of all the pools to see what styles you like and what you don’t?
