Highlights:
Fibre optic uplighting from the pool floor.

A sense of Zen-like calm and tranquillity resonates throughout this spa in Ireland . Carved into a mountain, the breath-taking pool is illuminated from a magical dusting of Swarovski crystals and shimmering leaf sculptures cascade from above. With no natural light the scheme evolves throughout the day - a temporal reference to a natural light-cycle. The beauty of this project lies in the sparse and elegant architecture highlighted by the dramatic and imaginative lighting design.
