Ireland has always been seen as a country where the most primitive contact with nature would make you experience extraordinary and mystic feelings.
It doesn’t really matter if this happens while admiring the blue sky or when you might find yourself underground: this cutting edge project is the perfect architectural and engineering extension of Ireland’s magic vibe.
A private underground space where to admire a 17 metre long swimming pool surrounded by blocks containing sauna, spa and gymnasium is what Carmody and Groarke Architectural Studio succeeded to create.
All covered in natural stone, this spa hosts two of the most prestigious selections of Limestone Gallery’s products: Bianco Neve limestone lines the walls and the floor areas of the extensive facility while Black Italian Basalt is dedicated for the wet areas of the spa.
This facility required the installation of a pool floor with an 8 mm gap on the perimeter, allowing the floor to rise to become an entertaining space.
These materials are available in standard sizes (tiles and slabs) as well as made to measure in any shape or size.
Approximate lead time: 4-7 weeks for cut to size work.
Exterior use of this material is analysed on a project by project basis and suitability will be determined subject to thickness and finish.
