Howard Chapman, Buildingtalk Editor at Vision London seminar for an update on the Embassy Sky Gardens Sky Pool project being built in Battersea, London.
Yesterday I visited Vision London to take in a few seminars and attend the launch of ComfoAir Q, next generation of MVHR from Zehnder.
The most interesting ‘Innovation in Architecture & Design’ seminar for me was a closer look at the Embassy Sky Gardens Sky Pool project being built in Battersea just a couple of miles from my home in London. It is going to be spectacular!
The Embassy Sky Gardens Sky Pool will be part of the second phase of this Battersea development of 872 new homes. The buildings will be connected by a landscaped link at first floor allowing residents access to a range of outdoor spaces and amenities creating a ‘working from home’ business area, gym and rooftop bar, and the swimming pool, that bridges the main entrance.
The 35m high suspended swimming pool, or sky pool’, has been extensively covered in the international press and on social media.
The transparent acrylic pool, which is structure free, will span 14m between two of the three residential apartment blocks offering undisrupted views of the iconic Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.
Brian Eckersley, Director of Eckersley O’Callaghan Structural Design speaking alongside Currey, Director of HAL architects at Vision London. Together they outlined how the Embassy Gardens Sky Pool pushes the boundaries of architecture.
The structural solution offers the project the ultimate in wow factor and the world’s first sky pool.
