Boutique Hotel is a term used to describe intimate, luxurious hotel environments that differentiate themselves from the norm. Providing exceptional and personalized levels of accommodations and services (without the sense of sameness), boutique hotels offer unique architectural style, chic interior design, and often unusual pools.
The Joule Urban Resort, a 1927 art deco building in downtown Dallas, newly boasts a pool cantilevered off the 10th level outdoor terrace, enhanced by large expanses of water disappearing at its infinity edge, creating a mesmerizing effect.
What a refreshing change to plunge into the architecturally exciting glass-ended pool for a stunning underwater view of the cityscape below, an innovation in swimming pool engineering and design to redefine the expression of aquatic space.
Renovation and construction were skillfully handled by famed designer Adam Tihany and the aquatic expertise of Counsilman-Hunsaker, where water and structure find harmony when they interrelate and work together to create an experience like no other.
