Perched atop a penthouse apartment in the prestigious inner city suburb of Surry Hills, this fully tiled swim spa gives bathers a birds’ eye view of Sydney’s sprawling skyline.

With most of the building materials craned into position due to the challenges of working on a high-rise roof top, the team customised the 2.4m x2.4m, 1.0m deep swim spa with eight spa jets with outlets on the floor, a blower, energy efficient pumps, two LED underwater lights, and a gas heater.

An automated chlorinator and pH sensor maintains water clarity and healthy chemical levels, while a cartridge filter removes dust particles and wind-blow debris

The curvaceous design is accentuated with glass mosaic tiles that add a golden glow to the reinforced concrete structure, which wraps around a seating area that cleverly doubles as a storage facility.

Neutral concrete features, including an alfresco kitchen and feature wall with outdoor shower, allow the swim spa to do what it was designed to do: create a stunning focal point while providing a luxurious water feature that satisfies both relaxation and fitness briefs.
