BRILLIANT OUTDOOR SPACES
CREATING A FUNCTIONAL ENTERTAINMENT SPACE
Digby Roberts of Goldfish Pools & Landscapes worked closely with the homeowner to create this stunning featured project. Set against a backdrop of the breathtaking Lorne foreshore, it features a fully-tiled white Bisazza glass circular plunge pool/spa that has been strategically set into the expansive timber decking surrounding the home.
The owners of this perfectly located holiday home are not only able to indulge in the gorgeous ocean views while relaxing in this brilliant architectural design, but can relax in the heated spa, feel refreshed on the underwater ledge, or frolic in the plunge pool – the perfect outdoor haven.
The visual impact of the pool is enhanced at night by the use of four Spa Electric multi-coloured LED niche lights, positioned underwater to highlight the pool’s stylish features. This creates an ambient addition to the residence and outdoor area.
Challenges were faced due to the sloping nature of the block, however the result shows clever site manipulation and skilful workmanship. The pool is fully-equipped with stainless steel handrails and steps that are seamlessly integrated into the wall of the pool, creating a highly-functional space, allowing for easy entry and exit.
Goldfish Pools & Landscapes made sure that minimal maintenance was required, allowing the owners to spend more time enjoying the pool rather than cleaning it. The pool is fitted with top of the range pool equipment, including a sand filter and pump, an automatic chemical dosing unit, automatic refill valve to maintain a constant water level and an in-floor cleaning system.
The pool also includes solar heating, coupled with a gas heater and 18 multi-directional hydrotherapy venture spa jets with separate controllers and boost pumps. This way, the spa/pool can be used every month of the year.
