CARPENTER STREET, BRIGHTON

A classic style family orientated swimming pool, 8x4m, nestled into a smartly designed traditional surrounding landscape. The extended steps spanning the width of the pool to the shallow end allow easy entry and exit zones, while allowing others to sit and relax in the water providing ample poolside lounging.

Sawn bluestone pavers from ‘BAMstone’ have been used for the pool coping and paving surrounds, with ‘Honed’ bluestone for the cladding and capping of the raised garden bed retainer wall(s), presenting an aesthetic change in colour and texture between the horizontal and vertical paved surfaces.

A large Merbau timber decking area provides ample seating and outdoor entertaining space accessible from the house to incorporate the glass conservatory, affording sun and or shade dependent on the time of day, with full view of the pool and landscape.

Linking the timber decking, swimming pool and surrounding paved area to provide pedestrian access, bluestone pavers were implemented as stepping-stone bands stretching through the lawn.

The garden bed retainer wall surrounding the swimming pool and extending through to the landscaped lawn area and timber decking, serves not only as a visual element but has two main purposes, 1) it acts as a retainer wall, that supports the raised garden and planting (that was existing on site), and 2) provides a form of outdoor seating for relaxation and entertaining purposes.

While adhering to pool safety regulations the ‘semi-frameless’ glass pool fence provides an aesthetically pleasing uninhibited view of the pool area and surrounding landscape.
