Welcome back to the first edition of Laguna News for the year!
After a well earned summer break, the Laguna Team are back in full swing, returning to a record number of enquiries that came in over the break. This is an excellent sign that families are placing an increased focus on Enhancing their Lifestyle with a Laguna Pool.
We wrapped up 2020 by completing, and handing over 25 pools in December alone! A mammoth task for our construction and finishes teams. We are set to continue to collaborate with award-winning brands, designers, architects and amazing clients on pool and landscape projects with WOW factor in 2021 and we look forward to showcasing these projects with you very soon.
For now, sit back, stay dry and enjoy this month’s edition of Laguna News with our latest feature project, located in the bayside suburb of Brighton. Enjoy our favourite Laguna Pools from the sky in our drone special, plus let’s recap with Matt Scrase on our shared victory of Australian Pool of the Year!
Situated in the coastal Melbourne suburb of Brighton, this luxury resort style out-of-ground Laguna Pool exhibits effortless style that flows seamlessly into the modern landscaping and home. Combining indoor and outdoor living areas is key when considering the usability of your home, garden & pool areas and this project is a stunning example of how you can integrate a Laguna Pool perfectly with the rest of your home.
The combination of large format stone applied on the external walls, and Alpine Green Ceramic tiles for the internals, gives this pool a unique, architectural element. An iconic Laguna infinity edge helps this striking pool to stand proudly out of the ground, where you can enjoy the sound, and the sight of water gently cascading water over the wet edge, from every angle.

AUSTRALIAN POOL OF THE YEAR
Last year saw Laguna Pools win the most coveted award of the Pool & Spa industry – Australian Pool of the Year.
The designer of this magnificent and now iconic pool Matt Scrase from Liquid Amber Designs sat down with SPLASH! Magazine to delve deeper into this industry show stopper, what made this project so special, and why the choice of pool builder was so important.
NEW BENCHMARK FOR AUSTRALIAN SWIMMING LESSONS
Swimming lessons are back on in Melbourne! Just in time for lessons to kick off, the Royal Life Saving (RLS) has published its latest National Swimming and Water Safety Framework for learn to swim (LTS) programs in Australia, which includes updated benchmarks.
Splash Magazine say that “Royal Life Saving is asking parents: can your 10-year-old swim 50 metres freestyle and tread water for two minutes? If not, we urge you to speak with your local swim school now.”

LAGUNA POOLS BY DRONE
A considerable amount of planning goes into our photo shoots, expertly shot by the team at Urban Angles. Once on location they have to consider the fly-zone, the weather and the surroundings to get these impressive drone shots, all whilst working in with Melbourne’s unpredictable and often windy weather!
Capturing a magnificent pool using aerial photography really does showcase the scale and design of the project offering a whole new perspective to enjoy. All we can say is, birds are very lucky!
