Swimming pools seem to be a symbol of luxury that every high-end real estate must have. A simple container of water that gives people a relaxing sensation can be designed in many ways. The world has its crazy examples.
The Cage of Death in Darwin Australia lets the swimmers swim in an underwater glass cage that is surrounded by 18-foot alligators. The attraction in Crocosaurus Cove operates 12 times a day, letting visitors take a 15 minute dive with the crocs.
The Infinity Pool in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands hotel lets its guests swim on the roof of the 150 meter tall 5-star hotel. The pool designed by Moshe Safdie is the world’s largest at this height and offers the best city-skyline view of Singapore.
If you are visiting Dallas, getting a room in Joule Hotel would be a great option. The special thing about the hotel is its rooftop swimming pool that goes beyond the edge of the hotel’s wall. Guests will enjoy the spectacular view from the plexiglass window at the far end of the pool. The Pool is also heated to perfection and offers the ideal place for perfect relaxation.
In case of building pop-up swimming pools, shipping containers are the right material. Shipping container pools have attracted crowd in many public events. For instance the fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger introduced a container swimming pool in Berlin’s Bread and Butter fashion trade show in 2011. Also the city of New York has arranged some container pool parties in Manhattan.
As mentioned in our previous articles, shipping containers are an instance of modest luxury because they allow even lower and middle income households to build a home or a summer house with a swimming pool. An experimental architect Stefan Beese set us an example when he used less than US$7,000 to build a fantastic swimming pool in his New Orleans home. (read more)
Even though shipping containers are a really simple structured construction material, their application is limited only by human imagination. The facilities that used to be expensive are now getting cheaper thanks to shipping containers. Some people say that heating the water in swimming pools is expensive. Could heat absorbing metal containers be the solution?
