This dramatic infinity-edge pool and spa were built on a very steep block to take advantage of the beautiful views of Brisbane Water, on the New South Wales Central Coast, and the surrounding bushland.
The homeowners requested a low-maintenance pool they can use all year that makes the most of the vista and bush setting. “This is the owners’ holiday house and they do a lot of entertaining when they are there,” explains Zeb Rodrigues, owner of Artesian Pools, who built the stunning pool-and-spa combination.
The 11.7m-long Bisazza-tiled infinity pool can be accessed from the house level and has a large adjacent entertaining area inside the pool enclosure. The spa, meanwhile, is slightly raised. Frameless glass pool fencing was used so that it does not detract from the spectacular views.
A ledge features at the deep end of pool so that swimmers can easily look over the edge and admire the perfect water view. Artesian Pools created a cantilevered design with infinity edges on two sides. The water runs through the river pebbles in the dry gutters and down to a retention tank under the pool, and the water is then pumped back to the pool.
Designing a pool that is both functional and a feature of the property is very important to the team at Artesian Pools. Creating something that complements the home with the best use of available space and adds value to the property is integral to the company when carrying out any design.
Artesian Pools was started by Eusebio Rodrigues (Zeb) in 1994. They work on 25 to 30 pools a year all over Sydney and country NSW, with a focus on quality, not quantity. The team specialises in the design and construction of concrete swimming pools and renovation of existing concrete pools. Their commitment to customers is to deliver a beautiful swimming pool using the best materials and high-quality workmanship. When you deal with Artesian Pools you deal directly with the builder, from the quotation through to the construction process and handover. “We spend a lot of time with the client ensuring the pool will suit their requirements and become a feature of their home,” says Zeb.
