From container to pool
An architect wanted to install a swimming pool in his house and decided on a little conventional. Stefan Beese decided to turn an old industrial waste bin into a beautiful pool and install it in the backyard of her home in New Orleans.
To transform the container into an elegant pool, Beese coated the large container with pool liner, insulation and wood.
To the new space, Beese decided to call “Pool Box” and best of all is that it can be easily transported to another place. “I wanted to create a concept of modern architecture in the garden.
I liked the concept of how a container could be camouflaged but also the idea that people would ask what it was. ‘Is it fiberglass? What is it? “I like the idea of surprise,” explains the German architect who lives in the United States.
The conversion of the container into a swimming pool cost him about € 6,400, but the architect ensures that a similar conversion can cost less.
