Friends who like swimming

What to do if you are tired of all kinds of traditional swimming pools?

Want something new and exciting?

Various brain-opening swimming pools

They are unique and subvert the tradition

You can even say that one is more thrilling than one novel!

01

Infinity London 360° infinity pool


Compass Pools


Built the world's first 360-degree infinity pool in London


The four side walls and bottom of the swimming pool are transparent


You can look around the London skyline in 360 degrees


I just want to swim in it


It's not that simple


You have to be brave


The swimming pool is on the top floor of a 55-story building


About 200 meters above the ground


The swimming pool can hold 600,000 liters of water

But a lot of problems followed


For example, what material can be used to ensure the stability of the swimming pool sidewall and bottom?


How to ensure the high transparency of the material?


How to control the water level? How to prevent spillover?


The design uses cast acrylic


This material can transmit light of similar wavelength to water


So it looks more thorough than glass


Also easier to clean


Even pedestrians can see the sky from below


Is it shocking?

The bottom of the swimming pool is also made of high permeability acrylic material


The situation in the swimming pool can also be observed from the bottom


And for the water level problem


The designer uses an anemometer to monitor the wind speed at any time


Adjust water level according to wind speed


This will ensure that the water does not overflow the pool


In addition, you don’t have to worry about cold and hot


The designer uses a heat exchanger to heat the water in the pool


Also associated with the building management system in the computer


To ensure that the water temperature is always appropriate

Then the question is coming again, how to get in?


Everyone guessed many ways


Is it possible to rebound through the installation of the machine on the roof of the next door?


Or slide in with a slideway device


There is also a cooler way


Drop in by helicopter like James Bond?

No, No, No, none


Designer Alex Kemsley


Came up with a brand new solution


They are based on the principle of submarines


Designed a transport cabin to send people to the pool


Afterwards, the transport cabin automatically dives and sinks


It's so cool...

In addition, this pool is equipped with various high-tech


It's too romantic


All-round lighting around the transparent swimming pool


Can change various colors at night


Make the swimming pool shine


02

Pulpit Rock cliff pool


Speaking of Pulpit Rock, everyone must be familiar with


It is a fjord tourist sign of Norway


604 meters high sermon


It's a cliff cliff straight into the fjord


It is a sign of the brave


There are no protective measures on the edge of the cliff


Even so


Tens of thousands of people still visit the platform every year

But what is even more jaw-dropping is


A studio in Hayri Atak, Turkey


To build a five-story hotel on the edge of the cliff


And has a super thrilling hanging pool

The hotel retains the characteristics of the sermon


On the top floor is a large viewing platform


Can hold about 100 people


And this viewing platform is also the only entrance to the hotel

The hotel has nine rooms


There is also a restaurant cafe


The most attractive part of the hotel is


Each floor has a curved external balcony


Each balcony is connected to the cliff


Like hanging in mid-air


Panoramic view of the canyon opposite

The balcony on the bottom floor has been extended


A rectangular transparent swimming pool


As if completely suspended in the valley


At the other end of its pool


The designer reinforced with only two steel cables


Does it look exciting and handsome~


Think about how it feels to swim in it?


More than 600 meters high


Xiaobian Guang sees here


I felt trembling~


But it’s worth seeing such a magnificent view


03

The Sky Glass-bottom Pool

A luxury apartment building in Texas


There is a unique swimming pool


The building has 40 floors


The swimming pool is more than 150 meters above the ground


Even standing on the edge feels scary


It makes people feel terrified!

The swimming pool on the roof of this apartment


Part of it extends out of the roof


And the bottom is completely transparent


You can see the street under your head


Well, exciting enough! !

Looking at the people in the pool from the street


As if floating in the air


Therefore, the pool in this building is also called the sky pool~

This part of the extended pool is 20 cm thick


One-time integral molding installation


Can guarantee the safety of swimmers~


But that's it


Really swim, enmmm...

But it’s hard to experience the sky pool


Because this pool is not open to the public


Only residents of the building have the right to experience


But there are still many local tyrants


I bought a house for the swimming pool

An apartment by the river in south London


Known as "the world's first" transparent glass swimming pool

Several major world top architect teams completed the fencing

The biggest feature of the swimming pool is that it spans two buildings


It is 27 meters long and ten stories above the ground


Swimmers can just see the view of the street below through the bottom of the pool


The experience is absolutely unique


Became a bridge between two ten-story apartments


Some netizens laughed and said


People who live here want to come together


You can swim to the next unit to open a swimsuit Party~
