For the creation of this Ashgrove pool, a rocky site proved to be a blessing in disguise for the homeowners, a young Brisbane family, and its creator, Beau Corp Aquatics & Construction
The family dreamt of an elevated plunge pool with an overflow as a feature, and a sitting area on the top deck. The brief was tranquillity, and the homeowners also wanted to maintain their grass area and still stay within budget.
Due to the very tight block with limited access and extensive underground rock, an elevated design was the preferred building option, based on time and cost, according to Matthew Harriden, co-owner of Beau Corp Aquatics & Construction. “Our inspiration came from the fact the site was very rocky and the cost for earth excavation to remove the rock would have been expensive and very timely, hence an elevated pool was chosen,” explains Matthew.
Surrounded by a deck area, also built by Beau Corp, the formal geometric rectangular design is a compact 5m long and features a beautiful fully mosaic blend-tiled spill overflow wall facing the house. Jasmine vine, a beautiful climber, provides a fantastic backdrop to the pool area and adds a great fragrant addition.
“This design takes the backyard environment to another level and shows what can be done with good design on a tight block,” says Matthew. “We have also met the clients’ brief without compromising their budget.”
