BINNIE STREET, BRIGHTON EAST

A traditional design that far exceeded the clients expectations. Using simple clean lines, keeping the colour scheme simple by using a natural material palette selection (can often be more effective than large amounts of bright colour) and a formal structured planting scheme makes for achieving a striking result.

The pool and spa has been created as part of an entire landscape project. The fully tiled concrete pool and spa boasts a simple design, a traditional formal shape with a classic style that makes it beautiful. A wide beach / offset to the shallow end of the pool affords ample poolside lounging allowing the owners and or guests to sit and relax in the water, with easy entry and exit zones.

Sitting into an expansive Merbau timber deck (allowed to weather naturally), the pool is an eye catching feature with a welcoming mid-blue fully tiled interior. A luxurious palette is created for the pool by day, which becomes even more spectacular when lit by Spa Electric LED blue pool lights in the evening.

Sawn bluestone square edge pool coping compliments the classic style of the house and its surrounds while providing maximum impact.

The pool is fully automated with the support of Pv3 automatic in-floor cleaning and circulation system as well as a Sunbather solar heating system and Raypak gas heater, a Zodiac salt chlorinator and automatic pH control system, ensures the pool is always crystal clear and is ready for use throughout the year, no matter what time of the year or how cool it is outside.

For added convenience and ease of operation, an Aqualink RS8 pool & spa control system with four (4) button spa side switch was installed. Designed to make owning a pool as hassle-free as possible, the Aqualink links all the separate pool equipment components together in a single control, allowing any member of the family to confidently operate the full system from either inside the house or from spa side.

Focal elements have been used sparingly in the design of the pool and surrounding landscape to create a restful area and also give an illusion of space. Spa side to the rear boundary surrounded by timber decking is a fixed raised honed bluestone clad bench seat / daybed for poolside lounging. A subtle yet striking bluestone pitcher split-face clad poolside feature wall to the end of the pool, with up-lighting from within the poolside timber deck, acts as a backdrop creating a soft ambience to the landscape, with a free-standing charcoal painted timber batten screen to other property boundaries.

Thoughtful ambient landscape lighting illuminates the entire project, creating a stunning night time visual highlight, and allows full use of the outside area both day and night.

In keeping with the objective of water conservation an underground water tank was installed to collect storm water. This recycled water is used to irrigate the lawn and garden beds and by use of an automatic water leveling device top up the pool when required.

This pool and landscape is an excellent example of how an outdoor area can be transformed from a barren back garden area into a classical work of art. More than just a pool, it’s a beautiful feature for the property, to bring many years of enjoyment and fond family memories as the children grow up.
