Homeowners are increasingly looking for professional assistance to look after their entire projects and A Total Concept Landscape Architects + Swimming Pool Designers provides this complete service. A Total Concept is willing to help as much or as little as their clients need
“We were engaged by the owners of this property to look after the lot, allowing them to concentrate on their own businesses,” says John Storch of A Total Concept.
“We undertook the designs, obtained building approval through the council and provided detailed specifications for the project. We recommended and organised both the pool builder and landscape contractor, then=QUOTE= undertook the total management of the project for our clients. “We worked closely in conjunction with the architects of the home to develop a seamless integration of the contemporary-style residence with the outdoors. Our clients wanted something different for the design, something unique but simple. We believe that we delivered!”
The simple rectangular pool shape and elevated poolside sitting area coupled with the dark paving and pool colour come together to create a unique contrast with the bright green surrounding gardens that act as an attractive frame to the space.
The water colour created by the mottled black glass tile mirrors the native gum located to the rear of the pool during the day and beautifully reflects the garden and house lights at night. This, together with the contemporary square-edge downturn of the paving, makes a bold design statement that showcases the stylish and contemporary home.
A benefit of the dark interior is that it retains heat in all seasons, which, together with the gas booster heater, makes the 15m-long pool the perfect place for the owners, who work long hours and swim for exercise, to dedicate their evenings to. On weekends, the elevated paved entertaining area is a great place to relax and unwind.
The surrounding gardens are planted with low-maintenance species so that the owners are not slaves to the garden.
