The Hubertus Hotel Dazes with Glass-bottomed SkyPool

The Hubertus Hotel Dazes with Glass-bottomed SkyPool

The 82-feet-long SkyPool is the spectacular wellness novelty at The Hubertus Hotel, a luxurious resort located in mountainous South Tyrol, Italy. The design firm noa*(Network of Architecture) has conceived a swimming pool as the cantilevered structure without any visible boundaries, only transparent glass and fresh mountain water. Italy-based architecture studio was also in charge of the hotel’s renovation and extension of 16 new suites along with a restaurant and lounge in May 2016.

The new pool, which imposingly rests in-between the two accommodation wings, seems like a floating rock, come to rest at the site, overlooking the valley. The hidden edges of the pool, kept in anthracite-coloured stone, abolish the gap between pool and landscape, creating the impression of the water flowing into nothing, disappearing between pool and landscape. The pool metaphorically reminds of a mountain lake, nestled into the astonishing mountainscape of the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Dolomites. – noa*

Created as a bridge between The Hubertus Hotel’s old construction and recent redevelopment, the SkyPool measures 82 ft long and 16 ft wide, and is edged by anthracite-colored stone.

It is propped-up by tree trunks, that were installed in a rhythmic, alternating pattern and perform the function of sun screens, room dividers, and rain protectors. The SkyPool features the glass front and a glazed window in the bottom section of the pool that show off the jaw-dropping mountain views. It is heated and reaches a depth of 4.3 ft.
