Phoenicia InterContinental Hotel swimming pool

Title

Phoenicia InterContinental Hotel swimming pool

Description

When Prince thought the area devoted to the pool was too small for a luxury resort, he tackled the problem through design: he created undulating waves of blue, green, and white tile that flowed across the terrace into the swimming pool, that, when viewed from above, made the oval pool seem to ripple out into the courtyard and appear larger than it actually was.

Interiors designed by Neal Prince.
