Embassy Gardens Sky Pool

Plans have been unveiled this week for an impressive sky pool spanning between two residential buildings in Londons Nine Elms Quarter, Battersea, a project that will undoubtedly push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering. The mind-blowing glass-bottomed swimming pool will bridge (115 ft in the air) two apartment buildings of Embassy Gardens and will be 90 feet long, 19 feet wide and nearly 10 feet deep, allowing residents to enjoy a swimming "over the air" experience and take in stunning views of London while doing some laps.
