Do you see the pairs of white steel columns? That's the pool support...

It is a pool on the roof. When you enter the front door you walk under two skylights on the bottom of the pool. The reflections on the space are spectacular during the day. We designed the pool with two bottoms and a void in between to catch any potential leaking. A sensor will sound when water enters the cavity so it can be repaired. No leaks in 10 years which is a testament to the builder!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A pretty daring skylight is one placed underneath a pool. It's daring for various technical reasons, but also for the fact that one is being looked at from below while swimming. In addition to the statement that comes from watching swimmers like fish, the dappled effect of light being filtered into the space is wholly unique.
