Sky Pool To Come To London 7th September 2015
If you’re in the market for a luxury swimming pool and are seeking some inspiration, you’re sure to be impressed with the plans for a new pool in London… which is set to be built 115 ft up in the air, suspended between two ten-storey blocks.
Designed by Arup Associates, Reynolds and Eckersley O’Callaghan, the pool will be 25m long, 5m wide and 3m deep – and be entirely transparent, according to Sky News.
It will form part of a sky deck between the two buildings to ensure that residents are afforded the best views of the capital, including the US embassy and the Houses of Parliament.
Chairman and CEO of Ballymore Group Sean Mulryan, whose idea it was, said: “The Sky Pool’s transparent structure is the result of significant advancements in technologies over the last decade. The experience of the pool will be truly unique, it will feel like floating through the air in central London.”
It may not be a practical solution for homeowners but it certainly is spectacular and will likely give you food for thought when it comes time to deciding on the design for your own unique swimming pool.
We would advise you to create a look book of swimming pool designs that you love before you spend any money so you know you’ll get the pool of your dreams and not be disappointed. Consider aspects such as pool shape, the weather in your local area, how you intend to use the pool and look into the different water features available.
