Transparent Pool Raised 10 Stories In The Sky Would Be Completely Epic
Ever dream of floating through the blue skies of London?
You might actually be able to fulfill your dream if this incredible glass pool bridging two buildings together in central London is created.
The "sky pool," to be built in Embassy Gardens, looks like something out of a movie! I mean, when was the last time you saw residential buildings connected by a glass pool that makes you feel like you're physically soaring through the sky as you get your breaststroke on?
According to The Guardian, the sky pool, designed by Arup Associates for the Ballymore development group, will suspend about 115 feet in the air above two 10-story buildings, and residents will be able to swim from one building to the other.
Why? It looks awesome. Besides, in a building where each apartment costs at least $940,000, there better be a transparent rooftop pool.
Chairman and CEO of Ballymore development group Sean Mulryan reportedly said,
My vision for the sky pool stemmed from a desire to push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering, I wanted to do something that had never been done before.
If a glass pool hovering 115 feet above the ground doesn't "push the boundaries," I'm not sure what does!
As of now, no details have been released regarding the expected completion date of the sky pool, but you can check out the photos below for a closer look.
