The reference image - and what i have made from it. Tweaked a long time to make the pool look as natural as possible. It has reflections (map, sun and 3d skybox) but you can also see through the water (caustics on the tiles:-). Most water shaders dont allow you to see the ground in the distance, thats ok for an ocean or a river. But a pool has to be crystal clear and that was tricky.

Your skybox right now looks off in terms of the lighting seen on the map. Also the 2D clouds are eh. Maybe try a sky dome?

Interestingly enough, a map with minimalist modern architecture like this can afford to do art early on because there is not a requirement for too many specific fit models. But still I would recommend finalizing the layout before making the pools beautiful.

I'd love to see this map's layout!

Sidenote: did you model that car?

Nope, this car is far above my modeling abilities. And here is the layout. What you cant see are the routes inside the building (red/green dots) and the basement, which also has full routes to reach A (and also B), marked with Pink dots. Vertical levels in this map are: basement, buildung/ground and roof.

I is allready a skydome made with  blender. The dome covers the skybox and not the playable area and consits of two parts. The upper part has a material with "$translucent" "1" on it, so the sun sprite is still visible. The lower part has a material with "$alphatest" "1. This avoids z-fighting with the reflecting water-square of the skybox which is a fake water (refract shader). U may ask, what the heck, a skydome should cover the playable area. True. But with my solution I can let a plane fly in the skybox that disapears in the clouds. Thats cool. Your 2nd remark: I have carefully planed the layout on paper, over and over again. At one greybox-point I have started to texture it. Was it a good idea? It pushes my creativity to a higher level  and now the layout is done. Risk: High. Cause if playtesting now shows weaknesses a lot of more work has to be done.
