Stunning images show the dramatic new & # 39; Sky Pool & # 39; from Great Britain, where swimmers can dive 115 feet above London next to the US embassy – while undergoing the final test before the opening of the following summer
- Photos & # 39; s show how & # 39; the world's first air pool that will float between two skyscrapers in London will look like
- With the 25 meter long, three meter deep crystal clear swimming pool, residents can float 35 meters high in the air
- The pole is completed a step closer after it has undergone the final tests before being sent to the capital
- It is next to the new US $ 1 billion embassy in Nine Elms, the most expensive embassy building in history
The dramatic new & # 39; Sky Pool & # 39; in Britain a step closer to completion has been made after it has undergone the final tests before it was sent to London.
The iconic structure hangs 35 meters high in the sky and connects two ten-storey buildings with each other, offering views of the House of Parliament, the London Eye and the London skyline.
The & # 39; Sky Pool & # 39; which accompanies a rooftop spa, a summer bar and an orangery, is the focal point of the £ 1 billion development in Vauxhall, in the south of London, next to the new US embassy.
& # 39; The world's first air pool, a dazzlingly transparent piece of water that will float between two luxury skyscrapers under construction in London
Thanks to the 25-meter-long, three-meter-deep crystal-clear pool, members of the exclusive development club can glide between 10-storey buildings in the sky
The two residential skyscrapers with the swimming pool in between are next to the new US $ 1 billion embassy that will open in January, meaning residents can see diplomats in action while they swim
The first of its kind and completely transparent, the 25 meter long, 5 meter wide and 3 meter deep infinity pool, will be the most exclusive location for a dive in Great Britain.
Nestled between the sky and the water swimmers, they are expected to feel like they are in an aquarium rather than an outdoor pool, because they look 35 meters below. Swimmers can also swim between the adjacent buildings.
Exclusive film behind the scenes can now reveal the complex work of a team of expert architects, engineers and consultants who push the boundaries of construction to create the Sky Pool.
Employees saw steel cut to measure and polish the acrylic pole structure at their base in Colorado, USA.
And the photos show how the team, consisting of architects Arup Associates, engineers Eckersley O & # 39; Callaghan and aquarium designers Reynolds, are preparing to relocate the huge bath to London.
The buildings connected by the Sky Pool will be subject to normal movements inherent to ten-story buildings, including wind and foundation.
But the pool structure can handle these movements by not being rigidly connected at both ends, because it can slide, while maintaining watertight integrity.

The Sky Pool, which will open in the following summer, is the highlight of the development of Embassy Gardens by EcoWorld Ballymore, with 2,000 homes and luxury apartments, a shopping mall, office space, bars, restaurants and landscaped gardens built around the new US embassy .
Tan Sri Dato & # 39; Sri Liew Kee Sin, Executive Vice Chairman of EcoWorld International: & # 39; The construction of the Sky Pool has been a very exciting project, of which EcoWorld Ballymore wants to become a reality.
& # 39; The opening next year will be a huge milestone for the development, and for the Nine Elms area more generally, because the swimming pool will really be a spectacle that both locals and visitors to the area want to see . It is a product of unique ambition, innovation, perseverance and imagination. We hope that both residents and businesses in the area can be proud to have the Sky Pool on their doorstep. & # 39;
Sean Mulryan, of Ballymore, added: “The vision for the Sky Pool stemmed from a desire to push the boundaries in the capacity of construction and engineering, Ecoworld Ballymore wanted to do something that had never been done before.
Graag We like to push the boundaries of all aspects of design, the transparent structure of the Sky Pool is the result of significant advances in technologies over the past decade. The pool experience will be truly unique, it will feel like you are floating through the air in central London, & she added.
