A beach house isn’t really complete without floor-to-ceiling windows or some other design strategy meant to connect it to the views. This house designed by Martin Gomez Arquitectos is a very good reflection of this idea. It’s located in Punta del Este, in Uruguay. In order to be able to frame these beautiful views, studio Element Arkitekter AS designed this house in Rogaland, Norway with a rather odd-looking top floor that’s partially cantilevers and resembles a periscope. Up here, a glazed wall overlooks the water and the land in the distance.
The window you see here is a cool feature that comes as a standard element for all container pools. It offers a view inside the pool and it lets light filter through the water. As far the aesthetics go, the standard color of the pools is black but those interested can also request a specific color. The pools can be installed both above and in-ground so a lot of details depend on the type you choose. Only two service connections are required when installing the pool: natural gas/propane for the heater and 40 amp electrical service and designated ground wire. The cost depends on the size of the pool and ranges between $26,900 and $35,000. The pools are customizable in a lot of ways and they also offer the option to control all the settings via smartphone using an app. This includes settings such as the temperature, the lighting and the jets. Costumers can also choose from a variety of different types of covers for their container pool, ranging from simple snap button models to electronically-controls covers that are also child-proof and retractable.
This is the Jellyfish House, a residence built by Wiel Arets Architects in Málaga, Spain. It’s an interesting house for several reasons. First of all, it’s an inspiration for other projects because of the way in which it deals with its neighbors that are blocking its view to the sea. The house was designed on four levels with a rooftop pool that cantilevers 9 meters to the South-West. It was designed this way so that views of the sea can be admired while relaxing on the terrace or swimming in the pool which, by the way, has a glass bottom.
