Built on a sloping coastal property in Portsea, this stunning pool by Aquarius Pools is uniquely formed by the undulating sand dunes on which it sits. Mimicking the understated ambience of the seaside location, the entire design exudes contemporary elegance with its geometric lines and a striking tile choice.
Conceptualised by its clients in conjunction with the architect and Aquarius Pools, the design was inspired by the relaxed coastal lifestyle and a long-term vision of the client. To be used predominantly for entertainment and relaxation, a spa is attached to the pool design along with a hardwood deck, creating plenty of space for lounging in the sun.
Stretching the length of the house, the pool is visible from the big outdoor kitchen on the second level by use of large glass windows that open out to overlook the surrounds and local township. The pool and spa are built in perfect proportion to the house and property for that “open resort living” feel.
Accessible via the hardwood decking, the pool and spa glimmer in the afternoon sun, creating an inviting look to the water. An unusual yet striking tile choice with hues of metallic, gold, white and pearl adds to the sparkle in the water and overall luxurious appeal.
A large solar heating system takes advantage of the open design, capturing the sun’s rays to ensure the optimal water temperature at all times. An energy-saving Variable Speed Pentair IntelliFlo pump adds a further “green” aspect to the pool as well as top-quality filtration.
Specialising in custom-built, high-quality concrete swimming pools, Aquarius Pools works on about 30 pools each year, concentrating on quality rather than quantity. This pool is no exception. The company prides itself on its high standards, honesty and integrity, and revels in the results of building beautiful swimming pools.
Aquarius Pools builds on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and in Melbourne’s bayside and eastern suburbs and is a member of SPASA.
