Midland Hydrotherapy Pool - Entry Steps and Hoist

As part of the newly completed multi-million dollar St John of God Midland Health Campus, we were engaged by principal contractor Brookfield Multiplex to construct the hydrotherapy pool. This highly specified pool required extensive planning and management to ensure the fully tiled 4m x 8m pool met not only the health and safety regulations, but also mirrored the high quality finishes that are seen throughout the hospital.
Designed for rehabilitation and water based therapy, the hydrotherapy pool uses a heat exchange system ensuring constant water temperature for patients. The pool has been designed for people with restricted mobility in mind. The depth ranging from 1.2m to 1.5m means that patients are able to walk through the pool with varied resistance whilst extensive stainless steel handrails to all pool walls and step entry allows for independent access. An AKRAS hoist system was installed to permit access for patients with impaired mobility.

State Swim Kwinana Learn to Swim Pool - Entry Ladder

We were engaged by discerning client State Swim to construct their newest learn to swim pool in Kwinana. To ensure that the pool met the high standard of the other State Swim facilities, we worked closely with the client to deliver this quality project on time and within budget. The fully tiled pool takes inspiration from the colour scheme of the centre, using a selection of brightly coloured tiles for the waterline in the traditional State Swim colour system.  Extensive lane ropes and anchor points are installed to zone the pool for various swim school programmes. A 200mm deep ledge was constructed to the length of the pool for use during toddler and baby swim classes.
Since opening, the pool has witnessed the enjoyment of many children and adults who use the pool daily to initiate, learn and improve on their swimming ability.

Darlington Concrete Geometric Pool - Above Ground with Platform

This pool perfectly reflects the design and flow of our clients existing home. An out of ground concrete pool was designed and constructed to alleviate the need for extensive fencing and to create a visual impact. A boardwalk was constructed to extend the existing decking to the pool zone. This provides space for the client to sit and relax on an inviting sun deck overlooking their stunning pool.
To mirror the property’s colour palate, a white mosaic for the waterline & empire blue granite headers were installed. These enhance the sandy beach quartz plaster interior, the pool exterior walls were waterproofed, rendered and texture coated to integrate the pool palette with the existing residence home.

concrete infinity edge pool city beach

With its unique design, interesting contours and lines, and palette of materials that perfectly complements the property, this project flawlessly fits the client’s brief for a pool with high aesthetic appeal. The use of contours give this pool an art-deco feel with a modern twist, a fully-mosaiced infinity edge wall which not only curves, but continues out on a forward angle down to the trough base. A second spillover face allows water to cascade into a steel drainage system which then flows back into the main pool. The high attention to detail that has been taken on every aspect of this project is proven in perfectly laid tiles over both spillovers.
This pool represents Pools by Design’s unique approach to residential pool construction- its bespoke design, creative use of finishes and high attention to detail have produced an enviable aquatic masterpiece.

The winner of multiple awards at both the SPASA WA and SPASA Australia awards, the infinity edge pool definitely has the ‘wow factor’ every pool owner desires. The sloping block lends itself perfectly to an infinity edge pool, designed with the breathtaking vista in mind the pool is framed as a central element of the property. Western facing and on the Darling Scarp, the client is able to witness the picturesque sunsets over the city and beyond, the pool can be mistaken for being carved out of the hillside. When in the pool, the infinity edge melts into the view. Natural stone has been used for both the cladding around the pool, internal waterline tile and spill over face, as well as the tiling of the entry steps to ensure the pool harmonises with the landscape.

Pool of the Year 2015 - Silver Pool and Spa Combo

No expense has been spared in the design and construction of this opulent pool. The pool is the central feature of this luxurious home, fulfilling the dream of our client.Being such a prominent and beautiful feature, the pool has been designed to be visible from every living space. Expansive glass panels have been installed to guarantee the view is not inhibited from anywhere in the house. Utilising this to dramatic effect is the cheese and wine cellar, which shares a unique viewing window constructed within the pool wall.
Another remarkable element is the six person, fully-tiled spill-over spa, which is perfect for relaxing. Both the spa and the pool’s interior features an exotic blend of glass mosaic tiles laced with 24 carat gold leaf inlays, continuing the luxurious and contemporary colour palette used throughout the residence, creating a seamless integration from the indoor to outdoor areas.

Pool of the Year 2015 - Silver Renovations

Our client’s brief for this design and construct project was to be ‘wowed’. Transforming the dated existing swimming pool into a 16m lap pool with swim out required extensive engineering solutions and significant stabilisation of the boundary retaining walls. Feature LED lighting around the property highlight the pool as the main feature of the landscape, whilst frameless glass fencing ensures the pool zone blends seamlessly with the residence. A large plant room stores all of the pool equipment behind a large feature wall with a cleverly concealed “Alice” door located within the cladding.
Alongside creating a pool which exceeded the client’s expectations, we also designed and constructed the surrounding landscape elements. This included feature decking, paving, benching, planters, balustrading as well as the installation of synthetic grass on a raised terrace seating area.
