      This house in Marbella can only be described as cool. 8)

      Wiel Arets’ Jellyfish House features an elevated swimming pool with a glazed underside

      Yuk! A concrete nightmare. Looks like something from the Soviet Union. All that focus on the pool….what about the other eight months of the year. Typically with all these over-hyped properties the tree in one picture is dying and the earth is bare…..absolute rubbish, a joke 😆

      fabulous house !!! so many BIG modern houses under construction in the marbella area – White cubes !!! the earth is bare as the garden hasn’t been planted yet Katy 😕 😕 😕 it’s taken architects many years to convince owners/ developers to go modern and now it’s happening; just like LA, Cape Town, Sydney, balearics, South America …….

      As long as it’s not in my back yard 😆 Designed because there wasn’t a view….now some of the neighbours won’t 🙁 knowing Spanish building methods I would be wary 😀 Saw a comment below the house

      I honestly would love to stick some columns underneath that cantilever or remove the glass bottom – either one or the other. While I like most of his work, I find this one rather a boastful one. It is almost shouting “just cause I can”. Wait till the leaks start occurring – leaks started a few months after being completed at one of the cantilevered glazed swimming pools in Singapore, The Arris, and they are unable to resolve this multi-million dollar problem for years now.

      If leaks start from the above pool, will the next thing be bodies crashing onto that patio set? 😆

      I had a look at a block between San Pedro/Estepona where the pool was on the roof of the building. Besides the very obvious issue of leakage a small leak could turn into a deluge & as a result all the apartments would have got damaged. The probability of this happening was extremely high due to the standard of Spanish building/plumbing.

      There also seem t be an apartment block next to it 😕 Perhaps it’s the Hotel Los Monteros 😯

      I don’t recall the exact location it was between La Plata & Kapinsky. On the south side of N340 and next to the road.
      The plot was small & probably in the past was a commercial plot/ Due to lack of space they had decided to have a
      pool on the roof which should have served around 50 flats. The size was not of a plunge pool.

      On my last trip the building is still standing minus the kitchen, windows,doors, sanitary ware plus the scaffolding.
