The most innovative pool designs in the world


Because there are so many various pool designs to choose from, it can be challenging to find one that best matches your aesthetic preferences.

Experience is needed to create the backyard of your desires, where you can unwind for years. When building a pool, there are many options to think about, so it’s crucial to thoroughly consider your options before deciding. Here are some of the most innovative pool designs.

Concrete is frequently chosen by homeowners who place a high priority on the design and appearance of the pool because it is so highly customizable. Concrete pools give you full control to bring your dream pool to life, from the look and shape to color and custom additions like ledges, despite taking longer to install than fibreglass pools, which only take 3 to 6 weeks. If you’re determined on a natural poolscape and using waterline tiles, concrete is another option.

If you want to make your pool appear like a completely integrated feature and not an afterthought, concrete is the ideal pool material to use. Additionally, you are free to use your imagination and be creative when designing your pool. You’ve come to the right spot if you’re looking for inspiration.

We’ve rounded up a list of some of the craziest and most innovative swimming pool designs so you can better understand your options:

Casa Brutale, Beirut

Casa Brutale, Beirut

Feedback on Casa Brutale praised the design while also raising concerns about how it was put into practice, and it was determined that it would make a good house for James Bond. It was designed for people who want to literally and figuratively exist on the edge.

The project’s glazed pool acting as a roof is the most fascinating aspect of the design, so the architect purposefully went with a straightforward aesthetic to highlight it. It also maintains the focus on the breathtaking surroundings.

Large glass facade frames that offer a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea and sunshine reflected through the water of the crystal pool (made of reinforced glass), which acts as the home’s roof, let natural light illuminate the volumetrically inverted underground home.

San Alfonso Del Mar, Chile

San Alfonso Del Mar, Chile

If you’ve ever fantasized about spending time on the water, San Alfonso del Mar is the finest vacation spot out there. Located in Algarrobo, Chile, about 60 miles west of Santiago, this magnificent private retreat offers a simultaneous view of two coasts: Yes, it has a view of the Pacific Ocean, but it also boasts the world’s biggest swimming pool, which is so enormous that it almost feels like a second beach.

This saltwater pool once held the first-ever Guinness World Record for the biggest man-made lagoon and is the exact same brilliant turquoise color as the sea just beyond it. The pool is more than a kilometer long, covers almost 20 acres, or the equal of 15 football fields, and has an incredible capacity of 250 million liters for filtered ocean water. It was built by Crystal Lagoons, a company founded by a brilliant Chilean businessman who has also planned and built several other (smaller!) artificial lagoons around the world.

Escape to Velassaru Maldives, a private coral island in the sapphire blue Indian Ocean, for a place of unsurpassed beauty and cutting-edge architecture.

Beautiful water and beach villas offer stylish tranquility with all the comforts of contemporary life. The thatch, stone, and teak used to construct the houses blend seamlessly with their surroundings. Whether they are in the gardens, on the shore, or overlooking the lagoon, it doesn’t matter where they are.

For people who like swimming and ocean views but don’t want to come in touch with sand or any other marine life, like fish or seaweed, this pool is perfect.

Hotel Hubertus, Austria

Hotel Hubertus, Austria

In the Puster Valley, at the foot of the Alps, is where you’ll find Hotel Hubertus. The hotel’s new 25-metre pool has drawn the most attention, despite the fact that its new 16 apartments have also attracted a lot of attention.

The hotel’s pool cantilevers across the property, projecting off the building to connect the original and new sections. Linking the old and the modern is the heated swimming pool, which is 82 feet (25 meters) long.

It stretches beyond the Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus’ walls and is supported by long tree trunks. As you swim toward the pool’s border, it seems as though you have merged with nature.

The clever design allows for a floating-like experience where all you can see is the water’s surface and the nearby mountains. And if you thought that was incredible, wait until you see the very end of the infinite pool.

Here is our list of the top infinity pools in the globe if you’re considering one for your backyard retreat.

You could see the snow 20 meters (66 feet) below thanks to a window that was constructed. In addition, you can see individuals floating in the air if you stand underneath the pool’s frame. The way they swim over the area with the glass floor certainly gives the impression that this is the case. Consequently, some call it the Skypool.

Violin-shaped swimming pool in Bedford, New York

Violin-shaped swimming pool in Bedford, New York

This swimming pool in the form of a violin will appeal to music enthusiasts. The building was made to resemble a real Stradivarius violin by the New Jersey-based business Cipriano Landscape Design & Custom Swimming Pools. (an Italian family that produced some of the finest violins in the world in the 17th and 18th centuries).

The violin’s “bow” is made up of twin koi pools that are positioned to appear to be below the water’s surface. The pool’s 5,600 fiber-optic strands and 450,000 glass tiles give it a vibrant glow. Former Wall Street executive Jay Dweck, who previously owned the building, modeled the impressive pool after a Stradivarius violin he once possessed.

Everyone imagines living in the ideal house. When talking about all the luxurious extras that your ideal home will have, one thing is certain: a swimming pool is undoubtedly one of them. If you’re planning to create an outdoor oasis, take inspiration from some of these wackiest and most creative pool designs. You never know, it just might help your project.
