The Glass-Bottomed Sky Pool At Embassy Gardens Is Surreal

In case you haven’t heard of this mesmerizing pool yet, get ready to be blown away. Ballymore developers have unveiled an amazing transparent “sky pool” that will be suspended 10 stories high between two apartment buildings in the Embassy Gardens residential development in London.

The first of its kind, this daring sky pool will be 82 foot long and will come enclosed in 8 inch thick glass that will allow swimmers to enjoy incredible views of the streets of London, 115 feet down below. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a quick swim here, feeling like you’re floating through the air (and water) between two buildings in London?

This amazing swimming pool has been already granted planning permission and will end up looking exactly as you see it here: entirely transparent and structure-free. Designed by engineering firm Arup Associates, with specialist advice from marine design engineers Eckersley O’ Callaghan and aquarium designers Reynolds, the pool will be developed as part of the HAL-designed 2,000-home Embassy Gardens in the new Nine Elms quarter.

The Sky Pool will allow residents to swim between the two luxury apartment buildings, which are both topped by sky decks with a bar, spa, orangery, and offering pretty awesome views of the Palace of Westminster. The proposed structure is 82 feet long, 16.4 feet wide, and nearly 10 feet deep.

Obviously, not everyone will have the opportunity to swim through the air, as units in the Embassy Gardens cost upwards of £602,000 or about $944,000.
