This underground swimming pool is a stunning example of a leisure area located in a housing development in Chelsea. Boasting a 8x3 metre pool and 2x2 metre spa, this is the perfect place to begin afresh or wind down after a busy day.
With the addition of both turquoise and natural stone tiles, as well as elegant ambient lighting, this pool area is a modern take on an underground cave or grotto in the Mediterranean. Allow the London Swimming Pool Company to create your everyday pocket of solitude and daily opportinity for holiday escape.
This conceptual and breathtaking scene is taken from a London family home located around the corner from the famous Abbey Road Studios. The swimming and wellness centre is at the height of technological, construction and design innovation. In addition to a 9x4 metre swimming pool, the space boasts a fully air-conditioned gym, steam room, spa area and changing facilities. There is also a counter current machine in the pool, acting as an in-water treadmill for a challenging exercise regime.
The undeniable feature of this wellness room is the whimsical and musical staircase which connects directly to the ground floor of the main house. Excluding part of the railing, the entire construction is made out of precision cut glass to ensure the light source from above is not obstructed. With a build time of one year, this project is the result of rigorous planning and a team dedicated to exceptional attention to detail.
This pool area is an example of pure minimalism at its finest. Clean lines, drenched in light and using the pool as the main feature, this area radiates elegance and serenity. Part of the client brief was to create a juxtaposition between inside and outside spaces. The low eye level glazing allows the user to look out into the surrounding landscape from the comfort of the pool. The specially-engineered glazing slides back into the wall cavities, allowing integration of the indoor pool and the outdoors, with the building appearing to be unsupported when the glazing is recessed.
With a focus on the linear and horizontal, the pool, ceiling and wall details balance and complement one another. The neutral colour palette is broken up by the stunning metallic-effect mosaic of the pool which like a horizon line, appears to have no ending.
Resembling a Swedish spa, this beautiful pool area is concealing a secret. Hidden away is an amazing technological element which is not visible to the eye. Built three levels below ground and requiring a twenty-five metre excavation, the base of the swimming pool has the incredible function of a moving floor. You can adjust the height to cater for small children, lap swimming exercise or even change it to be flush with floor level for an open plan and contemporary entertainment area.
The designers have incorporated some playful elements by adding subtle touches of different textures; the cream tiles are complemented by the slate feature walls and Italian mosaic detailing inside the spa. The spa too contains some amazing components, boasting six hydrotherapy and massage jets. The perfect spa treatment in the comfort of your own home.
A picture of elegance, this discreet yet stunning swimming area encompasses both classic and modern design. Cleverly using light and mirrors, this underground pool feels open and light filled. Again the designers have flirted with different textural elements in the space to ensure the area does not look sterile and unwelcoming. Both the slate feature wall and stained timber panel bench lift the room to another dimension; creating points of interest, balance and variety in the scene.
