Intelligently Designed Courtyard Concrete Pool
This courtyard concrete pool is an outstanding example of intelligent design which optimises the available space for entertainment and relaxation.
The original small courtyard of this home, while pleasant, was not overall functional. The clients’ brief was to provide a more open and readily accessible entertainment courtyard, with the pool and the spa to be accessed from three living areas which formed a ‘U’ shape around the space.
In order not to overwhelm the available space, and to complement the existing architecture of the home, an elegant but practical 9m x 2.5m x 1.2m spa rebated 0.5m into the pool body was designed. Broad, symmetrically cantered, offset steps were designed for easy access and generous seating.
Visual impact is created by raising the spa and designing an arbour with pillars to echo the pillars inside the home. The arbour provides shad above the spa as well as support for planting to soften the structure. A stainless steel spillway from the spa to the pool creates a water feature as well as providing the relaxing sound of water through the courtyard.
The visual impact of the spa is further enhanced at night by the use of subtle lighting cantered on the arbour. The lighting is focussed down the for pillars and centrally above the spa to highlight feature detailing.
The pool was fully tiled in small format ceramic mosaic tiles in a mid blue/green an large format 600mm square Anston Murray pavers were used around the pool. A large format porcelain tile was cut and used as the waterline tile to complement the colour of the paving.
Natural Pools pride themselves on their customer service, and as such most of their clients are referrals from architects, builders or landscape designers, or are previous clients familiar with their expertise and high standard of service.
