Water fountains have a long place in our history. Dating back to the Ancient Roman times, these reservoirs were first designed with a purely practical purpose—for holding precious drinking water and bathing. These early fountains were uncovered, free standing, and placed along the street for public consumption. (Wealthier folks also had them in their homes.)
Designed by Andres Remy Architects, this modern above-ground outdoor pool in Devoto, Argentina is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen!
When planning the placement of the swimming pool, the architects studied the path of the sun carefully. The pool is elevated from the ground creating a glass wall that allows views from within and outside. Even people inside the house can see the action in the pool while lounging on the sofa.
This project does a phenomenal job combining the best of both worlds: the natural and urban landscape.
