The Pool Company Project 2
Situated on an impressive acreage overlooking an olive orchard and rolling hills, this awe-inspiring pool was meticulously designed and constructed by The Pool Company. This gravity-defying structure draws the eye and makes a monumental statement on this gorgeous countryside property.
Built 2.5m above ground level to extend the home’s floor-line, an incredible five metres of the pool cantilevers over the landscaped gardens below, while the rest of the seamless body of water hugs the decking and house. Cleverly, The Pool Company utilised the space underneath the pool, housing equipment and the catchment tank, ensuring the pool is the key visual feature.
Negative edges, including the full four-sided negative edge spa, help the pool appear as a cohesive addition to the home and back decking. Black glass mosaic tiles provide the ultimate reflection of the surrounding landscape and give the overall outdoor setting an extra touch of class. A specialised concrete pool mix, which includes fibreglass for strength, was made for this pool, proving no level of quality was overlooked.
The teak timber decking, steel pergola and home extension, constructed by Tatnell Carpentry, tie the whole project together. The paving around the pool even matches the local limestone quarried on the property for a flawless look.
Since its establishment in 2006, The Pool Company has specialised in concrete pools and spas that involve a high level of complexity. With its sister company The Garden Company the team has the capacity to undertake full landscape and swimming pool projects.
