This modern pool was cleverly designed by the owner of Oasis Pools, Gil Howard. Howard ensured the largest pool possible was created for the space, and selected a rectangle shape that’s suitable for both exercise and relaxation.
The clients requested that the pool be built as close to the property as possible, which was accomplished with the extended pool bench. They also installed a magnificent 4m floor-to-ceiling bedroom window, which gives the impression that the pool is flush against the house, and achieves a beautiful effect.
Oasis Pools encountered some difficulties with machinery and product transportation due to the site’s limited access points, which included a 1.2m-wide gate and a 1.5m-high front boundary. To overcome this issue, a considerable amount of earthworks were completed by hand and with a small excavator.
The pool steps were positioned to provide direct access to the rear entertaining area, which creates a streamlined entry point. The ‘Ice Blue’ Duraquartz pool interior provides the water with a beautiful colour. LED lights were used throughout the pool to ensure the space can be enjoyed at any time.
The fully tiled water feature includes a 1.2m water blade with LED lighting, which creates a relaxing waterfall into the pool. Measuring 3m x 1.4m, the water feature encompasses the back of the pool and provides privacy from the neighbouring house.
Australis Pavestone pavers and bull-nosed coping were used around the pool for a creative beach effect. The Zodiac filtration equipment – which is controlled by an AquaLink remote – is strategically hidden behind the water feature.
