USUALLY , we put the pond outside the home. Even if placed in the inner room, there is usually behind or beside the house.
Ever tried to put it in the middle of the house? Swimming in the middle of the house can be a substitute for the transition space.
Look at the pond at this picture. Besides functioning as air conditioning, swimming is also a divider between living room and dining room.
Here, the pool stretches from the edge of left wall to the right wall. The vastness of nearly 15 square meters. The depth of the pond is only 40 cm, purposely made shallow by reasons of security, especially for small children to avoid a disaster drowned.
To create a refreshing sparkling sound, added the water fountains and waterfalls. Because water is so clear, you can see the bottom of the pool.
At the top of the pond there is a bridge which was made of camphor wood lined sungkai. Bridge sized 200 cm x 100 cm serves as a means of crossing from the living room to the dining room and kitchen. Also serves as a transition area upstairs.
No need to worry about the house became damp. There are how to cope. Simply create void just above the pond. Create void vertically upward up to the roof. The roof can be transparent so that light into the space around the pool. Place the vent with a decent gap on the edge of the roof void . Thus, air can circulate better so the house was cool, damp free.
