A multi-purpose pool was the key requirement for this sprawling acreage in Sydney’s North West. The L-shaped pool has been designed to intersect the house to both enable a section for lap swimming, and ensure the pool can be easily viewed from the home’s various indoor living spaces. The pool is 13.5m x 10.25m, and has depths ranging from 1.1m to 1.8m. To integrate with the colour palette of the home’s stone facade and the stone coping and alfresco area, a fine white interior with green glass beads was chosen. This is contrasted with waterline tiles around the edge of the pool and spa.

The spa, which acts as a ‘divider’ between the lap section and the wider part of the pool, is 2.7m x 1.5m and features 8 spa jets. It has a stone ledge, a design feature which is replicated in the main part of the pool and integrates with the steps.

At night, the atmosphere of the salt water pool is enhanced by five underwater lights. Glass fencing also ensures the view of the pool and expansive gardens isn’t obstructed.
