Malibu Pools and Landscapes specialises in creating fine outdoor entertainment areas through attention to detail as well as breathtaking pools, spas and landscapes.
The initial meeting with Sean Lynch at Malibu Pools and Landscapes allows the clients to outline their ideas for their project and ask questions. From this meeting, the 3D concept designs are created including all aspects of the design, as well as materials and finishes. All Malibu Pools’ clients are provided with an itemised proposal that details the complete proposed scope of works and all costs involved.
Malibu Pools and Landscapes, established more than 35 years ago, is now one of the leading pool design and construction companies in the country and has won several industry awards. Sean Lynch has been the managing architect at the company for more than six years. His background in environmental architecture brings a unique perspective to design and construction, as well as offering clients the latest in green design practices.
Focusing on a limited number of projects each year, Malibu Pools and Landscapes offers a complete package for pool and landscape projects.

Malibu Pools and Landscapes has developed an engaging and effective method of working with clients to ensure their ideas and concepts transform into an existing, usable environment. The principle of good design, according to Malibu Pools and Landscapes, comes from listening to your clients, offering your ideas and creating design options that echo their vision. The constant research of products and by offering clients the latest in green design practices emphasises Malibu Pools and Landscapes eagerness to develop environments that meet the needs of tomorrow as well as those of today.
The featured pool is a stunning example of contemporary design fused with a traditional heritage-style Brisbane home. This Malibu Pool and Landscape package ties in effortlessly with the beautiful home. It emulates the natural stone coping and surrounds of the home by using the same purple stone featured in the home’s stone walkways and landings. This was chosen to assist the natural flow between spaces. The pool and spa incorporates the latest in eco-friendly technology and focuses on the fine details to create a pool area that is timeless. It is this attention to detail that makes working with Malibu Pools and Landscapes a unique experience.
Sean Lynch worked collaboratively with the clients to ensure their ideas were being utilised and took the project from concept to completion. The client wanted a luxury outdoor living area for the family to enjoy. The wet edge was created to resonate with this primary objective. It is 2m × 2m and has 500mm play benches and stepping stones across the wet edge that appear to fall into the pool. The spa uses an electric heat pump, booster pump, in-floor cleaning to ensure easy maintenance, massage therapy jets and blower lines that create the ultimate zone for relaxation while remaining entertaining for children and guests.
Most clients want maximum energy efficiency, both to preserve the environment and also the hip pocket. In this case it was achieved by incorporating solar power systems for the pool and spa, an underground water tank and the latest in remote control energy-saving systems.
On completion of the project, a frameless glass fence was incorporated, giving the space a chic and polished finish without detracting from the pre-existing beauty of the pool and spa.
Malibu Pools and Landscapes is a professional company focused on creating elegant and timeless spaces that integrate into a client’s home in a stunning and seamless fashion.
