360-degree infinity pool in London

World’s first 360-degree infinity pool in central London, allowing visitors to float over 200 meters above the capital’s skyline.

Pool designers at Compass Pools have developed Infinity London, a 600,000-liter pool that would top a 55-story hotel, allowing visitors to float above the capital’s skyline.

The pool is made from cast acrylic rather than glass, as this material transmits light at a similar wavelength to water so that the pool will look perfectly clear.

The floor of the pool is also transparent, allowing visitors to see the swimmers and sky above.

Swimmers will access the pool through a rotating spiral staircase based on the door of a submarine, rising from the pool floor when someone wants to get in or out.

Other advanced technical features include a built-in anemometer to monitor the wind speed.

This is linked to a computer-controlled building management system to ensure the pool stays at the right temperature and water doesn’t get blown down to the streets below.

Boasting an innovative twist on renewable energy, the pool’s heating system will use waste energy from the air condition system for the building.

The hot gas that is produced as a by-product of creating cold air in the building will run through a heat exchanger to heat the water for the pool.
