Plans for 35m high sky pool revealed

Plans for 35m high sky pool revealed

Plans for a suspended swimming pool named Sky Pool have been unveiled for Embassy Gardens – the residential heart of London’s newest neighbourhood, Nine Elms on the South Bank.

The outdoor pool will link two residential buildings at the 10th storey – a world first – and allow residents to swim from one building to the next. The sky deck at the top of the two buildings incorporates a spa, summer bar and Orangery for residents to relax and take in the views of London icons which include the Houses of Parliament, London Eye and new US Embassy located next door.

The pool is transparent and structure free, 25m long, m wide and m deep with a water depth of 1.2m. Designed by Arup Associates, with specialist input from Eckersley O’Callaghan and aquarium designers Reynolds, the experience is intended to be more akin to an aquarium than a pool, with glass that is 20cm thick.

The pool is the vision of Sean Mulryan, chairman and CEO of Ballymore Group, working with the scheme’s architects Arup Associates. Ballymore are responsible for the development of Embassy Gardens with their development partners Eco World. Together they are developing the second phase as Eco World Ballymore.
