Mirrors add a unique element to this contemporary pool design
Built on the edge of a cliff, this pool almost appears to float among the tree tops. With access to the house achieved by a skywalk, this property is not your average suburban house. The owners wanted a pool that would be the main visual feature from both inside and outside the house. With a design and main features by the award-winning Rolling Stone Landscapes, a quality pool was needed to complete the picture.
The pool, built by Artesian Pools, is accessed through the internal living area and is a stunning addition to an already beautiful outlook. The pool is fully tiled with glass mosaics, which reflect the expansive blue sky overhead. As it’s so high up, there’s little shadow cast over the pool, allowing the pool to shimmer and sparkle impressively throughout the day.
At one end of the pool is a large feature wall. A full-length mirror was built into the wall to enhance the views of the bush backdrop. Three waterspouts below the mirror add sound and movement to the pool’s design. Along the far side of the pool is an infinity edge from which the water appears to flow over and down into the bushland below.
Three wide steps lead into the body of the pool and there’s a swim-out ledge under the water feature at the far end. An in-built spa sits slightly elevated above the pool, providing a good spot of supervision over the pool or just to sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
