Summer Calls for Incredible Pools

For the bold traveler and swimming enthusiast a new adventure could be on the horizon–a rooftop infinity pool with a 360 view of London’s skyline is in the making. A six hundred thousand liter pool supported by a fifty-five story building was announced by Compass Pools. They are calling it Infinity London.

The designers of Infinity London claim it would be the only building and pool of its kind. The pool would be constructed from cast acrylic. The floors, perhaps frightening to some and exhilarating to others will be transparent. If you weren’t already impressed, so as to not obstruct the view the only access to the pool would be through a spiral staircase that would rise through the water when a visitor wanted to enter the pool. Designers claim the pool would sparkle at night as the building would be fitted with special lighting.

The pool would also include a monitoring system for wind speed and other data to insure the pools temperature and also so water doesn’t splash to the streets below. The pool would be heated using waste heat from the building’s air conditioner system.

As previously stated, a five-star hotel would live underneath the pool (where visitors would be able to look up through the clear bottom and see swimmers). The hotel would occupy the top few stories of the building. Construction could begin in 2020 if contractors and partners get confirmed.
