Swimming in the clouds: London inaugurates first ever pool in the sky

The suspended pool in the air between two towers is ready and you will soon enjoy swimming in the clouds.

The super luxury Nine Elms district, not far from Westminster, had been waiting a long time for its most ambitious work. Yet, the floating pool between two skyscrapers is now reality and people can start swimming in the clouds.

Swimming in the clouds: London inaugurates first ever pool in the sky

# The ambition to overcome the limits

The “Sky Pool” is a 25-meter-long transparent basin, connecting two London towers at their top. As already illustrated in a previous article, the project started with digital renderings to show how it would look like.

Now, the suspense is almost over and the pool will soon be ready to use. In the words of its builder, Irish businessman Sean Mulryan, swimming here will be as “floating in the sky”. The panoramic view that you can enjoy from the pool – with Thames South riverbank down there – will completely get younger all senses.

The two suites connected with the pool are in the Nine Elms district. The area is characterized by unbridled luxury, also enriched by the presence of local Apple offices and United States embassy.

The decision to focus on this futuristic project will give even more prestige to this area, and it will be an example to be replicated somewhere else. After the inauguration on last May 19th  doors are finally open to this unique experience.

Not for everyone, however. A prerequisite is that swimmers are residents in one of the two buildings connected to the pool. Due to this condition, to experience the feeling of swimming in the sky it will be necessary to receive a special invitation from some resident.

My name is Laura and I live in Italy with my husband, 2 gorgeous daughters and Spritz…our little dog…he is part of the family too :-) As a mum I try to be the best example for my daughters, we like to spend time together and we share a passion: we love playing the piano! They know I am always there for them and can talk about anything – this is one of things in my life I am so proud of. I am a very strong woman who works professionally with a positive approach and mindset and never gives up. I am also very detailed oriented (thanks also to my criminology degree back at the Uni) and like helping others and guide them to a more positive lifestyle-approach and support them through difficulties. I like challenges and I am always keen on learning and improve myself. I believe this is the reason why I am so excited about this new adventure with the group!
