Family focus: the perfect family-friendly outdoor space


This family-friendly pool project in Sydney is sure to provide years of fun and enjoyment ahead

Anyone who has kids will know that adding a pool to the backyard will keep children happy and entertained for years, so it’s definitely money well spent. For this busy professional couple with two children aged four and six, entertaining was the main purpose of their pool, and they also needed a place to relax and watch their kids swim.

The homeowners wanted their pool to capture the northerly sun, with a sunshade to the side. The pool measures 7.5m x 4m, with extended coping width and a timber deck. “A pool has to fit in with the backyard and offer a good indoor/outdoor connection,” says Brian Formosa of Design Pools, who built this project in Sydney. “Here, there’s good useable space in and out of the pool.”

Due to the couple’s busy work schedules, everything associated with the pool had to be automated for ease of use. Heating requirements were met with the inclusion of a Pentair gas heater, and the pool was positioned correctly to collect the sun for as many hours as possible. BaduStream German spa jets were sourced from Continental Water Systems.

The young family also requested that their pool be fully tiled. “The fully tiled aspect was the most important part of this project,” says Brian. The couple’s timber cottage sits on a 1000m² level site with tight access, but fortunately the property behind provided access during construction. Once again, Design Pools has demonstrated its skills in creating not only a sophisticated outdoor living area, but also in building an exceptional pool and landscape.

Design Pools designs, constructs and delivers innovative and high-quality pools and outdoor living areas across Sydney. “We believe that a pool is both an extension of your home and linked to the vision you have,” says Brian. “The style of your home, the lifestyle you lead and the way you see your life moving forward is all taken into account when designing your pool. But it’s not all about looks. We also believe that your pool must be structurally sound and built to last a lifetime.”
