About the project

A unique and complex build, part of a newly constructed architectural home in the heart of Melbourne, provided us with a challenging, yet exciting project. Built on a small block harboured with bluestone laneways and neighbouring properties in close proximity, the structural and logistical obstacles were overcome with precise consideration. 

Suspended over the rear garage, tying into the upper living area of the home whilst remaining connected to the lower retreat are all well designed features of this pool and spa. The city skyline is a stunning backdrop,  highlighted through the vision of the architects who designed this home. Structurally incorporating the garage and garden planters, we worked alongside the builders and engineers to achieve a well coordinated and efficient use of space and services, while not compromising integrity. Fitted with all the modern cleaning, heating and automation features of today and delicate hydraulic design to ensure the below plant room could perform the necessary function, the innovation and skill are front and center. Bespoke finishes all round, the pool does not miss out. Beautiful Bisazza Menorca glass mosaic, gives the outlook a WOW factor that compliments the surrounding materials and provides a sparkling connection to the inner city lights.

Compelling detail in pool barrier compliance and creative positioning of pool plumbing are further examples of the innovation and technical nous on display.  In an area of Melbourne steeped in the traditions of a bygone era, this modern development is a beacon of the advancement of the industry.
