Perfect geometry with enough asymmetry to keep things visually entertaining. That semi-circular hand rail on the right is very chic. And the glimpses of the outside world through the windows must have involved some subtle exposure decisions.

In the past when the company paid I'd stay in some fancy hotels and I made a point of photographing the indoor pool. But none of them were as neat as this. Usually there is a weight frame somewhere near the wall with a few scattered weights, and an exercise bike, a rowing machine, and some long abandoned towels.

Thanks Maris, careful exposure always. I'm not sure how it is these days but given that it is building of private apartments owned by some heavy hitters (including at lrast one former PM) it might still comparatively undefiled.

Architects invariably give the brief to get in and shoot quickly before the owners get in and sully their dessigns.
