European resort style outdoor entertaining area


The family of this pool requested a modern-day European resort in the comfort of their backyard that would encompass the lawn, garden, cabana and pool. The team from A Total Concept Landscape Architects and Pool Designers delivered with both precision and professionalism

The featured design incorporates shimmering blue-coloured water that reflects the sky by day and contrasts elegantly with the blond travertine poolside paving. The chosen paving creates a slimline transition between the pool and garden, bringing the whole project together.

The large pool steps and extensive underwater benches work as informal seats within the pool, as well as complementing the heated spa jets incorporated in the backrest to provide the perfect place for relaxation.

The garden entails a beautiful painted masonry open-style cabana with travertine flooring, tying the space back to the finishes on the home, with kitchenette facilities including a barbecue, dishwasher, fridge set in bespoke cabinetry, large TV and integrated sound system, plus generous lounge and daybeds.

At night the cabana is well lit with LED ceiling lights for functional purposes, plus energy-efficient LED lighting throughout the garden areas and swimming pool to create mood effects with washes of light and dancing shadows. The project has been designed with simple clean lines to integrate the home with the garden area. The outdoor room provides the perfect shaded space for adults, children, friends and family.
