We are delighted to announce we are entering our busiest year to date after securing several high-end projects across prestigious addresses in London.
Aqua Platinum Projects continue to grow year after year designing and building multiple projects across the UK at one time, with some of the most talented individuals in the swimming pool construction industry.
With our extensive experience and knowledge across our ever-growing team, we offer a unique approach and spectacular service to all our clients, and pride ourselves on our ability to turn any bespoke idea into a reality.
We are pleased to share some of our recent updates below and look forward to bringing you regular updates on these high-level projects.
1 – 5 Grosvenor Place
Also known as “The Peninsula”, this exciting development is based on Hyde Park Corner in Belgravia – one of London’s most celebrated addresses – and will boast both hotel and residential facilities. Linked by a series of ballrooms and shops, this incredible building is set to make its mark on the London landscape.
Aqua Platinum have been given the opportunity to design and build the luxury amenities that include two 25 metre lap pools and two vitality pools for the hotel guests and residents’ respectively. All of the pools have been designed with a hybrid edge detail providing a minimal freeboard whilst still allow complete perimeter surface drainage, a fantastic solution to the age-old aesthetic vs function conundrum.
Further to this, we’ve been given the chance to showcase our workmanship with the inclusion of four steam rooms, four saunas and two ice dispenser features; all with their own individual concepts tailored to suit their surrounding environments.
The Peninsula is due to welcome guests from 2022, where 26 of the 190 rooms will be exclusive luxury accommodation which will offer the residents an ‘oasis of serenity’ in the heart of the busy city. The design and architecture are due to reflect Belgravia’s distinctive heritage and exhibit the best of British culture, art, and cuisine.
Park Modern is Hyde Park’s newest collection of super-prime residences, offering 57 apartments overlooking Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. The property faces the park from the south, allowing residents to enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset from their apartments.
The building’s exterior design will feature an unusual rippling façade, rather than a rectangular box to represent the parkland and nature that surrounds it. The interiors have also been carefully considered to maximise the views, with large windows, high ceilings and a light colour palette allowing the surrounding parkland to do the talking.
These design features will continue in the reception area and on the wellbeing floor where work is currently underway for a residents-only spa that will include treatment rooms and a gym that will overlook Aqua Platinum’s stunning 25m swimming pool and spa installations.
Nine Elms, Parkside
Set in the heart of Battersea, the Nine Elms project will see the redevelopment of plots B & D at the former Royal Mail centre. Construction is rapidly progressing and we are due to attend site imminently. The site is set to create a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood to include up to 1,950 residential units, a primary school, retail units and community facilities.
The Nine Elms area is undergoing one of the largest regenerations in London, making it the heart of a very exciting place to live. Close to the River Thames, this will become an extremely vibrant riverside location, with new green spaces, shops, restaurants and bars.
Plot B will feature a stunning lap pool overlooking the heart of the Nine Elms area and plot D will host a beautiful modern pool and spa designed to be the social hub of the development. Both pools will include an infinity detail running to the edge of the building, giving the users the impression that the water flows off the building; a striking detail that really furthers not only the aesthetic but the experience. We are thrilled to be working alongside both Telford Homes and Greystar to bring these concepts to fruition, and to tackle challenges outside of the norm (being rooftop developments).
