Dean Arets featured in Financial Times

Jellyfish House in Marbella, Spain designed by Wiel Arets (Jan Bitter)

Dean Arets' inclusion of a cantilevered swimming pool in a home in Marbella, Spain was featured in a Financial Times article about innovative home designs using water features:

“Water is relaxing, calming and dreamlike,” says Dutch architect Wiel Arets who has designed taps, basins and bath tubs for Italian kitchen and bathroom company Alessi but is better known for cutting-edge architecture that aims to be (in his words) “fun and interesting”. One of his projects that has made a splash is Jellyfish House in Marbella, Spain, completed last year. The white concrete property has a glass-bottomed swimming pool on its roof that cantilevers out over a terrace and driveway. “Passers-by stop in the street and stare, fascinated to look through the glass and see people swimming,” says Arets. “It’s like looking into an aquarium except instead of exotic fish there are humans.”
