Built in an unusually shaped triangular space, this feature pool was initially intended to be level with the main deck of the home, however, due to a flood overlay, this wasn’t a possibility. Through careful consideration and collaboration between the homeowners and the team at Albatross Pools, a new approach was formulated.
By working with the existing levels of the space, a pool zone complete with a range of practical and inviting inclusions, as well as an overarching sense of continuity was achieved. To ensure the space would look balanced and proportional, the sun loungers, bench seating, and lawn area were thoughtfully incorporated into the design.
The steps that connect the existing raised deck with the new pool zone are a significant design feature, maximising the visual appeal of the space while promoting functionality. Likewise, the bluestone pavers that surround the pool extend throughout the garden as stepping pads within the artificial turf, creating unity while also providing a striking colour contrast.
The seamless addition of a lower level to accommodate the pool zone has transformed this backyard into a fresh and welcoming space that the family will love for years to come.
