The swimming pool in Chamusca da Beira is located in a rural propriety whose landscape is characterized by the presence of large and small scale trees, in an orchard area with ornamental and fruit trees. The swimming pool was settled in a way that would allow to avoid changes on the terrain morphology and not to interfere with the existing vegetation, keeping the orchard's character almost untouched and favouring the landscape scenic atmosphere.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a granite stone platform where, in one of its extremities, relies the volume containing the swimming pool dependencies (one pantry, one toilet, one shower and a small storage room). This volume is coated with polished stainless steel sheets that, by being highly reflective, allow the camouflage of the volume on its surroundings, dematerialising its presence and visually extending the landscape.
