There are a lot of houses out there that can make your jaw drop, but this one… well, let’s just say nothing comes quite close to beating a home with a pool that’s basically a human aquarium. This Sao Paulo home, a renovated residence named Panorama, was designed by Brazilian architect Fernanda Marques for a couple without children. Incorporated as a living room wall is the sunken part of a splendid 10 meter-long narrow pool, allowing people in the living room to observe the swimmers, creating an element of tension and awe.

“Building the pool structure was the most challenging aspect in the project. To achieve the result, a very thick imported glass was used, and specialised labour was required to install it,” says the architect. Accessed from the 2nd floor of the two-storey apartment, we imagine pool-watching trumps Netflix in this home when it comes to entertainment.

The rest of the home is just as impressive, from the double-height light-filled living room, contemporary and minimal furniture and the beautiful artworks from the clients’ collection.
