Mumbai's Floating Balcony Pools

Cyber architect James Law designed an unbelievable skyscraping residential complex for real estate company Wadhwa Group in Mumbai, India. One of the most outstanding and eye-popping features of the facility includes a series of swimming pools placed within each balcony. These pools appear like floating gelatinous molds extending at the edge of each apartment's balcony.

Known as Aquaria Grande, it's comprised of two 37-story towers that boast modern and unique architectural design with several high-end amenities. With over 200 apartments, each unit features three-sided natural light which also allows for cross-ventilation. There is an indoor club house that includes a gym and sauna, three levels of vehicle parking space, and a sustainable podium garden. Making eco-friendliness a priority of the towers' modern design, the structures include energy efficient glass facades to reduce energy consumption.

  • Actually, yes.. the pool balconies did make it. My son has some friends who were in India recently and got to swim in one. You wouldn't get me in one of those (fear of heights, you know), but I think it's a really cool design element.

  • super!

  • Doesn't look like the pool balconies made the final cut as it doesn't show up in any of the other renderings (pictures).
