“Heavenly” glass pool connecting the roofs of two houses
Glazing technology for swimming pools provides a tremendous opportunity for designers and architects, opening before them vast creative horizons. Pools with glass walls or transparent bottom is built in the best places on the planet – in the luxury hotels, private households, SPAS.
On the beauty and originality of the glass pool has no competitors. The architects of our company are not resting on our laurels and strive to develop in the direction of glass basins to new frontiers beyond the traditional glazing.But in this area really have something to strive for!
Architects from the UK has created the concept of a giant glass basin, connecting the roofs of two ten-storey houses. The buildings are located in London on the street Nine elms. The project has received the characteristic name Sky Pool.
The pool is a fully transparent structure made of acrylic glass. Overall length is 28 meters, width is 6 meters, depth – 3 meters. Access to the facility will be open from the roofs of both buildings. The terraces will be built equipped rest areas with outdoor bar, sun beds, greenhouse and SPA. Residents of two homes, which happen to be participants of this unique project, will be able to enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear pool of crystal clear water, experiencing the thrill of flight over the abyss. Given the experience already built high-rise waterfalls, the new project promises to be very impressive. When this concept becomes a reality, residents of the neighboring houses will be able to visit each other's houses to swim wearing a bathing suit. Great prospect, isn't it?
Design glass basin, connecting the two houses, high-rise differs from existing analogues. If the existing structures are cantilevered and hanging over the "abyss" in part, this project provides a full "flight" glass pool. Transparent bottom area of 168 square meters, located at an altitude of 35 meters, these figures are really impressive!
From a technological point of view the heavenly pool on the roof is a fairly complex design. The issue is complicated by the fact that the acrylic would rely simultaneously on two separate buildings, which are in no way related. The construction is designed so that the main burden fell on the acrylic part, and supports mounted on the roofs of houses. Despite the apparent fragility, structure will be completely reliable. The engineers did the math and came to the conclusion that the 20-inch-thick acrylic glass is enough to ensure the durability of the object even with such impressive dimensions.
There is no doubt that this concept will be one of the attractions of the city. The house is located in a prestigious location – the residential complex, Embassy Gardens.
With the Windows of the houses offer stunning views of the river Thames, Westminster Palace and one of the largest Ferris wheel "London Eye". The appearance in this area a unique glass pool promises to be a worthy addition to the magnificent surrounding landscape.
The idea of building a suspended swimming pool, connecting the roofs of two houses, is unique. Nowadays such structures exists in the world. Estimated price of the apartment is in one of these high-rise buildings according to the most modest forecasts will reach 600 thousand euros.
The brightest, the most interesting ideas of the construction of the glass swimming pools is feasible not only in Europe but also in our country. Our company has powerful technological capabilities for the implementation of similar concepts. Let us work together to surprise the world with their projects!
