Pool tiles

When it all Lines Up with Travertine Tiles


The precision of lines and symmetry of these tiles make this pool a true knockout

Pool tiles are often an afterthought, however, for this gorgeous pool, the tiles were an integral part of the design and were the very first thing chosen by the couple and architect. “The tiles were selected first and we worked backwards from this,” explains Nick Markogiannakis, managing director of Nemcon Pools. The striking travertine tiles have been used in the pool interior as well as the surroundings. The gaps in the tiles line up perfectly with the home, creating an aesthetically pleasing symmetry. The warm-toned tiles are 400mm x 800mm and work well with the earthy colours on the contemporary-style home.

The tiles were laid onto a Pasco Buzon Pedestal system, which is quite different to traditional paving. A concrete base with draining is set up, then the pavers are fastened to adjustable pedestals. The pavers aren’t glued down and no grout is required, allowing water to drip down through the gaps where grout would normally be. “This allows for far better drainage,” says Nick. “All waterproofing and sealants are also from Pasco”.

The owners of this new home wanted a space where their three school-aged sons could have fun with their friends, as well as something they could grow into as a family. “There is a massive entertaining area that interacts with the alfresco area and the pool. It all works really well together,” says Nick. The pool was a unique design concept that came together through a collaboration between the owners, the architect (John Bornas at Workroom Design), the landscape designer (Brett Robinson at ACRE) and Nemcon Pools. The result is a resort-like escape for the owners to enjoy every day.

The people at Nemcon Pools pride themselves on style, innovation and quality and believe every customer deserves this when it comes to their new pool. “Our relationship with each of our clients will be built on honest communications and integrity,” shares Nick. “We work to our highest potential, delivering extraordinary quality projects across Melbourne and creating an enjoyable building experience.”
