Contemporary Mediterranean inspired pool


With a mix of natural colours, this pool by Artesian Pools perfectly complements the surrounding milieu

When you need to relax, there’s nothing more pleasurable than dipping into the resort pool during the occasional holiday. It was this notion that inspired the designers at Artesian Pools to create the ideal resort-style pool for the homeowner’s backyard in the rural area of Dural, New South Wales. The design does not reflect the usual tropical or Mediterranean style used in many resort pools, but rather a contemporary yet simple style. The pool has been designed to suit outdoor entertaining, but with a rustic twist allowing it to blend in with the rural bushland surrounding the property.

Made from concrete with an infinity edge and an accompanying spa, the pool includes a mix of natural colours, which perfectly complements the home’s surroundings and blends seamlessly with the lush bushland. Stone-coloured tiles enclose the boundaries of the pool, which also have another layer of slate tiles wrapped around them that combine earthy colours to further accentuate the bucolic theme. The pool is finished in pebble with blue glass beads, mirroring a stunning aqua colour in the water.

Entry steps are located on the left-hand corner of the pool, and the infinity edge is fitted with sky-blue and aqua-coloured mosaic tiles, as is the wall separating the spa, allowing the water to sparkle in reflection of the sun. The surrounding garden, viewable through the glass fence, is landscaped with tan bark and native plants, rendering that truly Australian, rustic scene.

The spa sits beside the rectangular pool directly in the centre, where you’re invited to sit back, relax and admire the views of the pool before you as well as the bushland and gumtrees displayed through the glass. A cabana also awaits beside the pool, allowing an undercover entertaining area during those sweltering summer days in the bush.

This particular rustic design was achieved by Artesian Pools through its designing expertise and experience of more than 18 years within the industry. Established by Eusebio “Zeb” Rodrigues in 1993, Artesian Pools has since been renowned for its specialty in fully tiled concrete in-ground swimming pools, working on 10 to 20 a year, mainly in Sydney’s eastern suburbs and the northern shores.

The company’s proficiency in designing and constructing residential swimming pools and spas has also seen it win the Master Builder’s Association’s 2011 Excellence in Swimming Pool Award for Traditional and Geometric Concrete Pools priced at $100,001 and over.
