View project details


Aquarium Architecture was commissioned to create a dazzling feature for a prominent premiership footballer. The 6000 litre reef aquariumm is 13ft long and stands at an imposing 8ft high.

The aquarium is manufactured in commercial grade acrylic due to its immediate location to the pool table. It also provides the best clarity and resistance to scratches.

The freestanding fish tank is visible from four sides bringing colour and movement to the sleek interior. The tank houses hundreds of species of fish and a substantial live coral reef hand constructed. Aquarium Architecture team chose the live rock on a diving trip in Indonesia.

The addition of a dedicated WiFi connection allows the aquarium to be monitored remotely; 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world.
