Death defying pool with 360º views of London

You will not deny me that there is nothing better than a pool to cope with the summer heat. Well yes, a pool that offers amazing views of a city like London. This is what the Compass Pools guys want to achieve with their Infinity London project, the only building in the world that incorporates a 360º infinity pool to enjoy the city at more than 200 meters high.

Pool that everyone will want to try

The pool that would have the building would have a capacity of 600,000 liters, being located on the roof of a building of 55 stories high. The pool would be constructed with molten acrylic instead of glass, as this material transmits light at a wavelength similar to water. In this way the pool will look perfectly clear.

The pool floor is also transparent, allowing visitors to see the swimmers and the sky, all at once. The swimmers will access the pool through a revolving spiral staircase based on the door of a submarine, which will rise from the floor of the pool when someone wants to enter or leave.

Characteristics of the infinity pool

One of its main features is the anemometer that would incorporate to control the wind speed. At that point, every precaution is small to avoid any danger.

This is linked to a computer controlled building management system to ensure that the pool stays at the right temperature and that the water does not reach the streets below.

With an innovative turn in renewable energy, the heating system of the pool will use the residual energy of the air conditioning system for the building. The hot gas that is produced as a by-product of the creation of cold air in the building will go through a heat exchanger to heat the water in the pool.

The pool is also equipped with a full spectrum of lights that will give the building the appearance of a bright and bright torch at night.

The designer and technical director of the pool of Compass Pool, Alex Kemsley, commented: "Architects often come to us to design infinity pools on the roof, but we can rarely comment on the design of the building because the pool is usually an occurrence late

Project for a few years from now

For now it is only a project, but if all the partners and contractors that will participate in the project are confirmed, it is expected that next year 2020 will be when construction begins.

In addition to the pool, the building will have a five-star hotel on the upper floors, offering the possibility to its guests to enjoy this wonderful pool.
