Salt Pools Project 11
While at first glance this pool may stand out due to its classic and seamless lines and finishes, it is so much more. The wet-edge gives the illusion of a never-ending swimming pool and draws in the far-reaching city views, creating an inviting and serene haven for this urban property.
The homeowners have school children, and requested a pool and outdoor space that would allow the family to relax, have fun and entertain. It was also important to them to incorporate the city view into the final product and turn their outdoor space into a place of tranquillity.
Salt Pools & Landscapes have turned this brief into reality, and have framed the beautiful view perfectly. The position of the pool brings the indoors and the outdoors together and the large doors open up the space to make it feel like the entertaining area runs from inside the house.
The concrete in-ground pool is finished with 65mm x 65mm mesh backed porcelain mosaic white tiles, which when combined with the LED lighting creates stunning ambience at night. Many products have also been installed to aid in pool maintenance, including a Paramount in-floor cleaning system.
Salt Pools & Landscapes specialises in concrete swimming pools and spas. They predominantly work in the Hawthorn, Toorak and Malvern areas; however they work all over Melbourne, building 50–60 projects each year.
The company is a partnership between Richard Workman and Wayne Daly. Richard has been in the industry for over 20 years, building in-ground concrete pools and spas for some of Melbourne’s leading pool companies, and he is experienced in all areas of pool construction. He is a qualified licensed builder of swimming pools with the Building Commission of Victoria.
Wayne also has over 20 years of experience in the industry. He has successfully run his own business for the past 12 years and has worked extensively with some of Australia’s elite landscape designers. Richard and Wayne decided to combine their businesses to design, coordinate and create backyards with the ‘wow’ factor.
