Pools by Design are proud to construct amazing, award winning pools for our clients. Our high standard of professionalism and quality pool creations have been consistently recognised by SPASA WA since becoming a member. We were extremely proud to be recipients of various awards in recent years, not least, the 2015’s Pool of the Year  for the stunning Infinity Edge Pool in Lesmurdie. We are looking forward to continuing to create some of the best concrete pools in Perth and Western Australia in 2018 and beyond.

With its unique design, infinity edge, water features, and palette of materials that perfectly complements the property, this project flawlessly fits the client’s brief for a pool with high aesthetic appeal. Working closely with the house architect (Iliadis & Associates) and landscape designer (Mondo Landscapes), we were able to construct a pool that would not only be aesthetically stunning, but functional for the client and their family. An out of ground concrete pool with an extensive moat was employed to alleviate the need for extensive fencing creating a visual impact from multiple areas within the property whilst still integrating seamlessly with their contemporary style. To mirror the property’s colour palate, a white mosaic tile mix adds a beautiful luminescent quality particularly on the unique radius of the infinity edge and the spa spillway. Notably, the large river stones in the pool trough offer a tranquil and characteristic trait. A feature tiled wall was constructed with three custom water features installed to create a stunning facet to the overall design. This pool spa combination is a showpiece within spectacular surroundings; the epitome of class, elegance and luxury pool design.

As the garden focal point; the central water feature starts atop the highest retained level of this sloping block. Spouting from an oriental styled shallow bowl, the water flows down the slope atop a stunning mix of glass mosaics and interspersed feature rock work. The rock work interrupts the deluge creating a spectacular cascade effect. Book-leaf marble frames the central spillway. Atop each pillar shallow bowl planters soften the overall theme with flora. The catchment blends into the main pool with mosaic tile finishes to match. This elaborate and unique water feature compliments the pool and its surroundings.

The contemporary style of the residence dictated a symmetrical minimalist design for this elevated plunge pool. Careful planning was required to ensure we did not disturb plants gifted by their late parents that were of high sentimental value to our clients. The mirror effect of the entry steps is a unique feature and large format slate granite coping is perfectly matched with the external cladding. Frameless glass fencing to the alfresco area ensures uninterrupted views, bench seating beckons you to sit back and relax in the pool soaking up the ambiance of being surrounded by the formal garden style.

2017 Bronze Winner – Residential Pool Spa Combination

This pool and spa combination is a key feature of this luxurious home. Having fully renovated an existing shell to a high standard; we met the owners brief to really take advantage of the stunning city views this location enjoys. Remedial works included removing existing waterline tiling, coping, stepping stones, existing pool surround paving and plaster finish. The eastern pool wall was re-profiled to align with the house wall and the dated stepping stone features between the pool and spa was removed and a contemporary spillway incorporated. A Wi-Fi enabled Connect 10 system means that the pool settings and features, such as heat control, lighting are entirely automated and programmable through a mobile tablet or smart phone, making maintenance and operation a breeze. New LED lighting and drop edge travertine coping amplify the sophistication of the pool area. Both the spa and the pool’s interior features a combination of rainbow quartz and mosaic waterline tiles; continuing the luxurious and contemporary colour palette used throughout the residence, creating a seamless integration from indoor to outdoor.
