Interior features are skylights for natural lighting, large storefront window separation between the warm-up pool and large pool for visibility, terrazzo entrance floors, and concrete pool deck with porcelain tile accents.

Exterior finishes include brick veneer, architectural paneling, and unique curved wave-like glass front entrance with exposed steel beams.

There is underwater lane lighting, overhead flood lighting, and low-light/color mood LEDs. The pool areas also have sound attenuation panels and sound baffles suspended above pool.
