24 Astonishing Rooftop Swimming Pools

This infinity pool looks like it's on the edge of the world looking out over the cityscape beyond.

Welcome to our gallery featuring an astonishing array of rooftop swimming pools.

Patios and gardens are not the only novel use for rooftops.

In some rare and beautiful cases, a swimming pool is a great use of that space too!

Having a pool is a great use of this extra space to create a fun and relaxing space for you and your family. You can fit a pool in any size space so there is no reason you couldn’t have a pool on the roof.

Pools can be designed to accommodate any space or design, making even a roof a great option. One of the best features of a rooftop pool? An infinity edge that makes you feel like the pool flows right out into the sky.

Surround a pool with a patio or deck to make a great place to relax or entertain. Include plants and trees and you can have all the best features of a backyard on a rooftop space.

Pools come with many different edges, tiles, finishes, lighting – we even feature a metal bottomed pool! Regardless of whether or not you are putting a pool in the ground or on a rooftop, something here will spark your fancy.

Think outside the box and perhaps your next project could include a rooftop pool, jacuzzi, or water feature!

We hope that you enjoy the rest of our selection of gorgeous rooftop swimming pools.
