Creating a Stylish, Flexible Entertainment Space in New Orleans

Since 2012, AKVO Spiralift has been meeting the technical challenges of prestigious projects throughout the world, from United Kingdom to Russia, Hong Kong, Australia and the United States. Its silent, automatic and compact movable pool floor solutions harmoniously blend in with any environment. The system can be adapted to meet specific client requests and unique usage profiles to create a truly multifunctional space.  

In New Orleans, the owners of a stylish private residence had the opportunity to dictate shape, features and finish of their 825 sq. ft (77 sq. m) transformable pool, all thanks to AKVO and its versatile Spiralift®. The pool floor solution provided was tailored to the owner’s specific needs, featuring full-width in-pool stairs, three retractable seats and a 17 ft x 5 ft (5 m x 1.5 m) central island, which can be deployed independently. These features, with powerful jets, can be configured to create a lazy river, allowing swimmers to float around the island. Perfect for entertaining guests on a warm sunny day! 

When dinnertime rolls around, their pool can disappear within minutes fully hidden beneath an attractive mosaic tile terrace, with a level of detail reminiscent of Persian carpeting.
