ThinkGreen was employed to design the pool complex for a residential redevelopment project on the outskirts of Philadelphia. The existing pool complex, in a state of neglect, was transformed into a refined and sophisticated space where residents are able to disconnect from life's hectic demands while recharging and relaxing in a resort- like atmosphere. Sora Pool includes a lap pool, an infinity edge lounge pool with partially immersed lounge seating and a family-friendly wading pool. Hot tubs, outdoor kitchen spaces, cabanas, a variety of unique spaces for lounging and lush vegetation were also incorporated into the design. Inspired by East Asian design themes, the pool and amenities provide a place for residents to peacefully escape.
