London’s New ‘Sky Pool’ Puts Every Infinity Pool To Shame

Ever wanted to take a dip in the sky?

“Swimming” and “London” aren’t exactly synonymous – but that hasn’t stopped a UK architecture firm from redefining the urban swimming pool in the heart of the city.

Putting your average infinity pool to shame, the ten-storey “sky pool” will be suspended between two apartment buildings on the south bank of the Thames. Designed by London architects HAL, the half Olympic size (25-metre) pool is already in the second stage of development and is expected to be completed in 2017.

 

And if swimming over to your neighbour to borrow some sugar isn’t cool enough, the pool will have a fully transparent structure so it’ll feel like you’re literally floating in the sky over London.
