Residential

Manhattan Beach (CA), USA

These Manhattan Beach residents can enjoy their pool and spa simultaneously or independently. When closed, the pool and spa are perfectly hidden from view thanks to a simple, yet seamless integration of the movable pool floor system and surface finish.

Residential

Colorado, USA

Given the small footprint of this pool, 4m x 3m (13’ x 10’) Akvo’s Spiralift technology allows for an impressive maximum depth of 3m (10’).

Akvo’s patented Spiralift technology makes this high travel possible without any cables or guide rails visible in the pool. The sleek, simple equipment is put on display in Colorado through two large windows in the pool shell.

Spectators in the house’s basement can watch the lift in motion, or watch the flat screen display through the pool. Perfect for Shark Week!

Public

Oak Hill High, Converse (IN), USA

This movable pool floor was installed as a replacement to the obsolete hydraulic system installed 40 years prior.

The client, delighted with the final product, appreciated the compact nature of Akvo’s equipment, allowing them to maximize their pool depth. Akvo’s state-of-the-art technology is the perfect solution for replacement or retrofit of other movable pool floor technologies.

Olympic Swimming Center, Munich, Germany

In collaboration with Bodan Schwimmbadbau GmbH & Co. KG

The Olympic Swimming Center in Munich features an Akvo movable pool floor, a project executed in collaboration with Akvo’s German partner, Bodan. A specialist in fully stainless-steel solutions, Bodan goes a step further by designing and fabricating the pool shell and movable pool floor in stainless-steel.

Akvo is always open to collaborating with local partners, supporting and coordinating to ensure a successful final result.

Commercial

Hotel Dream Hollywood, Hollywood (CA), USA

The Akvo movable pool floor at the Dream Hotel in Hollywood has turned the rooftop pool into a money-making amenity.

Patrons enjoy the pool in the daytime. In the evening, the pool can be closed at the push of a button. By recuperating the valuable square footage on the rooftop, the hotel can host guests, throw parties and organize private events. Because there is no open pool, the space is safe for patrons to enjoy. Commercial loading capacity 250kg/m² (51 lbs/sq.ft) means there are no restrictions to usage of the space.

Commercial

Fendi Château Residences, Surfside Beach (FL), USA

This residential complex features an Akvo movable pool floor with optimized structure to handle a standard commercial loading capacity of 250kg/m² (51 lbs/sq.ft).

Complex residents can enjoy the pool without sacrificing their common space, used for entertainment, receptions and events.

Residential

New Orleans (LA), USA

With a 5m x 1.5m (17’ x 5’) retractable island in the center and three retractable seats, this pool showcases the configurational flexibility of Akvo’s movable pool floors. In the design phase, customers and architects have the ability to dictate shape, features and finish of their movable pool floor. Note this project’s intricate mosaic tile finish of this pool, reminiscent of Persian carpeting.

Residential

Solihull, UK

In collaboration with Guncast Swimming Pools

A simple yet beautiful residential swimming pool with corner steps.

Thanks to Akvo’s movable pool floor, the residents of this property can enjoy an extended swimming season. When closed, the pool floor acts as an insulation barrier, retaining heat and moisture, an ecological way to keep the pool warm, even on the UK’s chilliest end-of-summer nights.

Commercial

Trump Int’l Hotel & Tower, Vancouver (BC), Canada

Hotel management saw the value Akvo’s movable pool floor system could bring to a space. The hotel can offer guests a space to enjoy aquatic activities or a high-end lounge, all within the same space. A perfect way to optimize on hotel amenities!

Residential

London, UK

In collaboration with Guncast Swimming Pools

The 20m x 4m (65’ x 13’) movable pool floor in this upscale London home features a rounded end, stepping stones and rounded corner steps. Akvo’s versatile technology allows their engineering team to provide fully bespoke solutions.

Located in the 4th basement of the home, the design and planning of this installation was no easy feat. Akvo’s engineers coordinate directly with contractors and pool builders to execute projects by carefully working around site limitations and restrictions.

Public

PEPS Université Laval, Quebec City (QC), Canada

This was the first Akvo movable pool floor installed in a public pool setting. Functional since 2013, this system has allowed the Université de Laval to offer a wide range of aquatic activities to students and athletes.
