Dumpster Transformed Into a Trashtastic Portable Mini Pool
If it’s icy cold where you are right now, why not treat yourself to a warm mental escape and feast your eyes on Louisa Dawson‘s awesome mini-pool made from a repurposed dumpster? We’ve reported on dumpster pools popping up in the past, but this quirky little design takes a step back and offers a more private approach for those interested in dumpster diving.
While the exterior of the pool remains as rough and gritty as the dumpsters you’d see on city streets, Dawson added an extra bit of polish with traditional pool tiles and a cool stainless steel ladder. Designed as functional art able to be installed on any site, the pool is portable and simply requires a quick fill for the splashing to begin.
Pool Box: A Deluxe Backyard Pool Made From a Recycled Dumpster
New Orleans-based architect Stefan Beese dove headfirst into recycled design by converting adefunct dumpster into a pristine backyard pool! The Pool Box is made from a 22′ x 7′ steel refuse container that has been lined with protective foam insulation and clad in pine wood slats. Best of all, the design’s modular nature means that it can be easily packed up and transported to another location should the need arise.
