The UK's first ever man-made fresh water public bathing pond is a piece of innovative Land Art, within a working construction site area of London's King's Cross. The 40m long, natural, chemical-free pond is the creation of Ooze Architects; Eva Pfannes and Sylvain Hartenberg, and artist Marjetica Potrc.
The pond was engineered and built by Europe's leading natural pool designers BIOTOP and its UK partner, Kingcombe Aquacare Ltd.
Entitled 'Of Soil and Water': the King's Cross Pond Club, the piece encourages visitors to enter the water and participate in the installation as a piece of experiential art.
Visitors to the Pond have access to 8 changing rooms, padlock lockers, and showers. A lifeguard will be on duty during opening hours and all the required guidelines have been followed to ensure that swimmers can enjoy a safe swim at the King's Cross Pond Club. There is also a viewing platform providing visitors with an aerial view of the pond and the wider area of King's Cross.
