    Pools are amazing additions to a home for many reasons. They help you get away from the summer heat when you don’t want to leave the house. They give you an option for exercise and watery family fun. However, pools can also take up a lot of space that you might want to use for something else.

    Hidden pools are the answer to that dilemma.


    1. Hydrofloors is a leading company in engineering indoor hidden pools.

    2. Artist Alfredo Barsuglia designed this “Social Pool” to be a hidden public pool that keeps itself cool, and can help relieve the heat in the Californian desert.

    He did have a bit of a wicked eccentricism side. The pool is public, but it requires a little bit of work to get to. First you have to get GPS coordinates from the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood. Then you have to drive several hours from Los Angeles, and hike into the desert, where you can find this pool hidden in the sandy no man’s land. It’s only 11 ft by 5 ft. However, I have a sneaking suspicion it won’t be crowded if you find it.
