Floating Swimming Pool to be built on London South Bank
Posted on: 20/08/2015

London Nine Elm’s is soon to see a dramatic change as developers Ballymore and Eco World propose grand designs for two luxury apartments connected by an 10th storey outdoor swimming pool (pictured).

The pool has been designed by Arup Associates, Eckersley O’Callaghan and Reynolds. It will be suspended between the two apartment blocks at 115ft, measuring 25m long, 5m wide and 3m deep- with the hope of an aquarium like feel rather than a pool.

The luxury doesn’t stop at the pool with residents benefiting from a ‘sky deck’ on top of the two buildings including a spa, summer bad and Orangery with breath-taking panoramic London views. The £1bn Embassy Garden development will be situated on South Bank and will offer 2,000 new luxury homes- with starting prices at £600,000.

Sean Mulryan, Chairman and CEO of Ballymore Group 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.

“At Ballymore we like to push the boundaries on all aspects of design, 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.”

This unique Embassy Gardens building is the second phase of this development and with work commencing soon, buyers can expect to move in 2018.

Projects like these demonstrate the innovative ideas that exist within architectural and engineering companies across the world. It is an exciting time for London and will certainly contribute something new to the capital.
