The world first glass bottom Embassy Gardens sky pool will float 35 metres above the streets of London suspended between two apartment buildings.
The 10th floor swimming pool will have views over the London Eye, the British Houses of Parliament and the apartment building’s namesake, the nearby US Embassy.
Embassy Gardens developers shipped the impressive pool from Colorado USA.
It is connected to each building using technology that allows it to move as the buildings settle and to adapt for wind sway.
The Embassy Gardens sky pool is 25m long, 5m wide and 3m deep with a water depth of 1.2m.
The sky deck at the 10th floor of the two buildings incorporates a spa, summer bar and Orangery.
Brian Eckersley Director of Eckersley O’Callaghan, the team of engineers that made the Sky Pool possible said guests will be able to swim from one apartment building to the other.
“Once you swim off, you can look right down. It will be like flying.”
Exclusive use only
Sadly, only members of Embassy Gardens’ exclusive Eg:le Club can glide between buildings 35 metres up in the sky.
Apartments start from $1 million (AUD) with the most expensive priced at $9 million.
But we’re hoping that someone will rent one out on AirBnb.
Still, if you are planning a trip to London, it’s a pretty cool thing to see.
Where is Embassy Gardens?
The new Embassy Gardens suites are in Nine Elms South London.
The apartments are close to Vauxhall Bridge, between the Oval Cricket Ground and Battersea Park.
The Embassy Gardens sky pool will open on May 19, 2021.
