Pagoda Hill Pool opens to the public this weekend with a unique, 50-meter-long infinity pool, opened by New York City-based Gibsons Design Group. And you can dive in and enjoy it all year round, as the pool is a pool of water that rolls from the bottom toward the ceiling, extending outward to accommodate a full-size pool. The idea for Pagoda Hill Pool emerged when Gibsons designers Karyn Stremick and James Walsh were visiting a secluded Japanese garden in Kyoto. They were stunned by the water flow through the slope of the rocks, peaking at the water depth of 150 centimeters (6.6 feet) — close to a depth that would be impossible to see in another, indoor glass-enclosed pool. Because the feature goes perpendicular to the pool surface, it brings in sunlight on the water while simultaneously reflecting light back into the sky. “In this setting, we saw a unique opportunity to develop a new glass creation for the city of Greenbelt,” Stremick says.
