Deep Dive Dubai, the world's deepest swimming pool for underwater diving, has opened to the public. As Lead Designer, Pascall+Watson, together with Ramboll Dubai, developed the futuristic and innovative interior design from concept to completion.
Located in Dubai's Nad Al Sheba, the unique 1.500sqm oyster-shaped attraction pays tribute to the United Arab Emirates pearl-diving heritage. With a depth of 60.02 metres (197ft), the underwater attraction has two themed throughways immersed within 14 million litres of freshwater, equivalent to six Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The underwater habitats will increase the pool's diversity and create rescue and recovery training facilities, wreck penetration, and complex, technical diving training. It is equipped with more than 50 cameras and top-level sound and lighting systems for entertainment and safety purposes, including 164 lights.
