This simple pool by Josh Schwal of Southern Cross Swimming Pools was created with the owner’s family in mind. The design is effective and beautiful and perfectly utilises the owner’s limited backyard space.
The featured pool is 13m in length, allowing for the adults to swim laps to accommodate for fitness needs, and the wider section by the steps of the pool is both shallow and large enough for the owner’s children to play. Purely functional, the pool’s colour scheme was inspired partially by a visit to Queensland, after which the team discussed with the client their needs and how to achieve these with both beauty and precision.
The pool’s environmental statement is its solar heating, which minimises its carbon footprint substantially. The classic stone paving and the glass mosaics in the pool’s interior highlight a stunning contrast with the water, and the electric lights ensure the pool looks beautiful all hours of the day. The frameless glass fencing around the pool provides an unimpeded view of the water, which the Pentair Max E pro pump ensures is always clean and clear. This cleaning system also means minimal maintenance.
Southern Cross Swimming Pools was first registered by Mr O Dorrity in 1961 and was involved in the formation of SPASA (Swimming Pool and Spa Association).
