Constructed on the roof of an apartment building in inner Sydney, this 7.5m x 2.5m pool is a key feature of the luxury penthouse. Because of the pool’s location, all materials had to be craned up to the roof area. The pool itself sits on rubber vibration pads, and Laticrete was used to fully waterproof the area.

The pool is ideal for laps, and also has a feature spa, which is a highlight of the entertaining area. The design of the pool also makes the most of the expansive bayside and district outlook, and glass fencing was installed to maximise the views and add an elegant touch. The pool is fully tiled with glass mosaics, and natural stone was used for the coping, providing a lovely contrast. A stainless steel pool ladder is both practical and sophisticated.

The client’s brief was for a pool to enjoy with minimum maintenance, and to achieve this, the pool has an in-floor cleaning system.
