Luxury living: pool design

Aquarius Pools offer a fresh and sophisticated approach with this unique pool design


Building a pool in conjunction with a house ensures the end result will be nothing short of stunning. This is exactly how this sophisticated pool by Aquarius Pools came to be, as it was built to complement the contemporary Toorak home. The project required some complex engineering and a high degree of collaboration between the architect, Steven Mittelman of SVMSTUDIO, the house builder, Bayside Construct, and Aquarius Pools, as the pool abuts a basement making it difficult to construct. All involved worked tirelessly together to guarantee a flawless final product that would exude luxury.


A screen wall sits between the pool and entry pond providing privacy to the swimmers and an inviting entry to the home. An overflow wet-edge wall ties the pool and pond together enabling a glimpse of what lies ahead upon entering the property. The pool itself is a sizeable, rectangular shape that harbours onto the living room with frameless glass fencing ensuring the pool and luscious outdoor area are fully visible. This is especially pleasing when the pool is lit at night by the Spa Electric LED lights, adding a majestic feature to the home.



Blue mosaic tiles by Coulson Tiles have been fitted in the pool with aqua Bisazza glass mosaics in the entry pond for a striking contrast of colour. Low-maintenance features are standard for all Aquarius Pools and this pool is no exception. A PCC 2000 pool-cleaning system has been fitted into the pool along with an Astral Pool 36in filter. Solar heating and an IntelliFlo variable speed pump has also been included, which saves an enormous amount of electricity.
