WORLD'S FIRST SKY POOL
Float from building to building through 25-metres of crystal clear water above London ..
Spanning the Embassy Gardens’ Legacy Buildings, the Sky Pool is the world’s first ‘floating’ swimming pool some 115ft in the air which links two residential buildings in the Embassy Gardens development, a new neighbourhood in Nine Elms near Battersea Park.
The stunning Sky Pool will allow residents - the first in the world of its type - to swim from one building to the next, completely suspended in the transparent, 25-metre-long, structure free pool. With glass that is 20cm thick and water depth of 1.2 metre a swim is more akin to an aquarium than a pool. On reaching the side at the top of the two buildings there's a sky deck with spa, summer bar and Orangery for residents to relax and take in the views of London icons. The Houses of Parliament, London Eye and US Embassy next door are all visible from up here. Designed by Arup Associates, with specialist input from Eckersley O'Callaghan and aquarium designers Reynolds, the end result "will feel like floating through the air" says Sean Mulryan, Ballymore Group chairman and CEO.
Prices of the 2,000 apartments in the Embassy Gardens development will range from £600,000 to £5million for the penthouse suite.
