APSP International Awards of Excellence 2013 – Bronze Medal Winner


Our client asked for a modern, timeless, elegant, and fun pool environment.  We took advantage of every inch this backyard offered and created a minimalist zero edge artistic pool environment.  This environment includes a zero-edge pool and spa finished in glass tile, water lounge, multiple benches, ipe decks, automated linear fire feature, water feature wall, hand sanded lenders limestone decking, LED lighting, landscaping, and landscape lighting.  The pool’s surge basin is cohesively constructed with the pool structure and is located under the lower ipe deck in front of the linear fire feature.  If you notice the spa wall is the same level as the perimeter zero edge beams, when in spa mode the entire pool automatically lowers 2.5” into the surge basin.  In addition, if the kids want to have fun in the pool, with one touch of a button the entire body of water lowers 2.5” to decrease water loss and bather splash out.  Successful contemporary or modern architecture is created in the details; no detail was overlooked in this awesome elegant backyard retreat.
