Caribbean-inspired project

VIW Residence, the name of the project that went viral on social media, was inspired by a project in the Bahamas, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), an architectural firm in Denmark. See below what the project is like:

The building on the coast of São Paulo has four floors with six apartments each, in addition to the penthouse, which has three units. The structure of the building has a gym, sauna, hot tubs and air-conditioned leisure areas.

At launch, each apartment cost R$1.8 million. At the moment, the unit is valued at R$4.7 million.

The terrace, which features an eight-meter-long swimming pool (see details below), has 20 square meters, in addition to a 10 square meter swimming pool. Each cover, however, is twice that size. All units have a barbecue.

The building has five pool models in various positions, each with a specific size, varying in width between 50 centimeters and 1.40 meters. The height, in turn, varies from 20 to 85 centimeters, all of them being 8 meters long.

In addition to the dimensions, the pools also have eight LED points installed in the lowest part of the water, on the wall behind the pool’s acrylic. The owner can choose other colors through the RGB system.

All pools have benches that serve as steps for those who want to enter, as well as white tiles measuring 5×5 centimeters. The swimming pools have a capacity of 8 thousand liters of water.

Furthermore, installed swimming pools also have the possibility of installing a heater, which is at the discretion of the property owner.

The maintenance area and pool pumps are located in a ventilated cabinet, next to the barbecue sink, on the balcony. Water treatment is carried out using a ‘3 in 1’ tablet.

In the comments, some tourists who visited the city are surprised to discover that it is a real swimming pool. “I thought it was just a decorative LED,” said Beatriz Emanuelle. “I thought it was a drawing on the glass,” said another tourist in a comment on the post.

Caribbean inspiration and engineering challenge

O g1 showed that the pool is real, but another question was raised: How is it possible to have a ‘pool balcony’? The answer involves a real engineering challenge.

“There were several challenges. The first of them was “balancing” the project, since having the pool at the front caused the building to have a high load in one part and little in another. Our challenge was to balance the whole. We managed to solve this by distributing better the weight on the slabs, beams, pillars and even in a part of the basement”, said engineer Fabio Planas.

The cost to assemble each pool was around 50 thousand dollars. The assembly process was also different.
