People in other countries will certainly sympathize with the client's wish to do something for his dog in the house. Yet I haven't seen such consideration taken this far, since the dog is basically given almost half of the house. This pool is the dog's domain, and his comfort is aided by tapping into a geothermal heating system.
Lisa Frederick added this to 16 Dream Indoor Pools Swimming in Grandeur
Surrounded by a framework of cutting-edge industrial architecture, this luminous pool is used primarily by ... wait for it ... the family dog. I know, it made me weep too.
The outer walls of the same project are extremely thin, composed of pipes attached to a vertical framework. On this level the inner sanctum is dedicated to the owner’s dog, and the main living quarters are enclosed with sliding panels on the level above. Even in the city, a connection to the surrounding environment is important.
