The most beautiful glass pools of the world
Glazing swimming pool is a very effective and powerful architectural technique, which use in their work the specialists of world renown. None of the existing technologies are not able to do that with ease manages the technology of glazing pools. Around the world built thousands of swimming pools with glass walls, a transparent bottom or with underwater portholes. Each of these pools is lovely, but we suggest you to admire several of the most striking projects.
Console pool. In 2008 in Dallas during the reconstruction of the old five-star Joule hotel, built nearly 100 years ago, was built the pool, floating in the air. Two and a half meters of the pool hangs over the bustling city streets, and the rest relies on the overlap of the tenth floor of the building. The front wall is made of acrylic glass – this solution allows to create the effect of endless space. It seems as if the pool connects to the firmament. This object became one of the first "floating" pools, so quickly gained worldwide fame.
Swimming pool with the transparent bottom. This pool was built in the mansion of Shaw House with an area of 285 square meters in Vancouver in 2000. The pool is located along the Western wing of the building. Pass to the water through the terrace. One side entrance from the terrace leads to a spacious bedroom, with another in the office. The bottom of the pool is long and narrow plate with a rectangular transparent portions, made of acrylic glass. This decision helped to create the incredible atmosphere of the floor below – the reflections of water playing on the walls of the room located under the pool.
The pool at the Dream Home. In the exclusive area of Singapore, Holland Village is built elegant and incredibly cozy mansion Tangga House with an area of 720 square meters. House with roof garden, built without frills and fanciful architectural elements. A maximum of ease, harmony and comfort. With two sides of the house is framed by L-shaped glass pool overflow type. Crystal clear blue water surrounding the mansion, perfectly complements the overall architectural concept. This solution allowed us to maximize the comfort of residents and guests houses in the hot tropical climate. One of the walls of the pool combined with a wall of the house. Sitting in the living room, you can admire the sparkling turquoise water in the pool. The whole room is bathed in a pleasant blue light. It seems as if the house was founded by the hand of nature – clear pool contributes to the perception in the first place.
Home pool. Luxury transparent pool built in a private household in Melbourne, Australia. The author of the project – is an Australian company OFTB. In the work of the designers used a very interesting technique: it creates the illusion that a thick layer of water freezes in space, cutting the white stairs. It seems that a small ladder is not interrupted at the junction with a swimming pool, but bumps into him, leaving in visually blue underwater space.
To create such illusions in the step was embedded perfectly transparent, almost invisible acrylic panel. Another creation of the company OFTB – is the luxury pool cascade type, made in two levels. Two parts of the pool separated by a partition almost invisible, the water smoothly flows from the upper level to the lower. In 2010 the project was awarded as the best home SPA pool
Hovering over the abyss. On the twenty-fourth floor of Shanghai Holiday Inn Shanghai PudongKangqiaocantilever built swimming pool is 30 metres long and 6 metres wide, partially overhanging the street. The bottom of the pool is made of transparent acrylic glass, so the visitor of the pool it seems as if they float over the abyss with a depth of twenty-four floors. Through the transparent acrylic you can enjoy views of the city from a very unusual angle. Hovering above the abyss pool is intended not only to surprise the guests and to give them pleasure, but also significantly save space hotel.
Hanging pool. This miracle built in Dubai on the top floor of the luxury hotel InterContinental Festival. The pool is partially built into the building, but much of it is hanging off the edge of a skyscraper. Front panel is made of bent acrylic glass highest strength. This design eliminates the extra seams between the acrylic elements. Thus, a single part simultaneously performs the function of the transparent walls and transparent bottom. About the reliability and security of this pool, don't worry – acrylic can easily withstand enormous loads, therefore, it is possible to build all sorts of structures at high altitude.
Indoor pool in the living room. In London, in the heart of the chic private apartments the pool with transparent acrylic walls was built. The outside of the house has the appearance of a traditional English mansion and not particularly different from neighboring structures. But internally the space is decorated in stunning futuristic style with the use of a very unusual architectural decisions: the ceiling opens at the touch of a button, in the midst of living trees, most of the walls are made of glass. Transparent pool fits perfectly in this interior. In fact, the pool is fenced off from the living area by a glass partition, but creates the illusion that main room and the pool are one. View of the water offers not only living room but also bedrooms located on a higher level. This decision came to the architects intentionally. Extraterrestrial nature of this interior is due to quite practical purposes. This spacious property, no facade, so the recreational area with swimming pool is inside the house. If necessary, this area could become an open – roof opens in automatic mode.
