BESIDE THE SEASIDE
A PICTURE-PERFECT POOL
Resting among hillsides laced with vines and olive groves, the owners of this Mornington Peninsula home approached Falcon Pools wanting an alfresco entertaining space that would capitalise on their views overlooking the calm blue water of Port Phillip Bay.
A collaboration between Falcon Pools, the homeowners and their builder, the alluring outdoor space uses sleek minimalist lines and understated quality materials to allow the picturesque setting to shine.
With capitalising on the views as the foremost priority, the 8.5m x 3.6m negative-edge concrete pool with 2.2m x 2.4m spa is completely suspended on piers, requiring more skilful engineering than the average pool build. With more than 20 years of experience in a wide variety of pool builds, Falcon Pools is able to overcome architectural and engineering challenges with ease.
Endlessly extending towards the horizon, the breathtaking negative-edge spanning the length of the pool allows the homeowners to feel as though they are swimming in the view.
Both the pool and spa feature a timeless interior of 50mm x 50mm COTTO porcelain mosaic tiles, complemented at night by Spa Electrics underwater LED lighting. The dark interior is accompanied by bluestone coping to three sides, contrasting against the expansive timber decking surrounds. Fully-frameless glass fencing ensures that the view of the pool and beyond from inside the home remains uninterrupted.
With environmental concerns in mind, the pool utilises solar heating, a water tank and one of Falcon Pools’ own Sapphire recycled glass media filters, which offers water savings of up to 30 per cent.
Working in conjunction with some of Melbourne’s finest architects, builders and landscape designers, Falcon Pools operates throughout metropolitan Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.
Family-owned and operated, the company specialises in the architectural design and construction of quality inground concrete swimming pools, completing up to 80 pools annually. Falcon Pools has the ability to design a pool to suit any style, shape and requirement.
