WERE STREET, BRIGHTON

Creating a calm ambience for total relaxation. The swimming pool is situated so it becomes the focus of the garden and the adjoining golf course becomes a lively and attractive feature/backdrop to the whole property. The pool and landscape were built to take advantage of the view and provide plenty of scope for the owners and their young children to relax and enjoy the surrounding environment.

This smartly designed family orientated swimming pool, with curved swimout and large format steps spanning the width of the pool at the shallow end, allow easy entry and exit zones as well as targets for the learner swimmers to aim for or social spaces to sit and relax whilst cooling off and enjoying the view.

Complementing the open view through to the golf course, the design is both visually impressive and functional. Ensuring the poolside blends effortlessly with the location, the palette of materials is very simple with the matt white tiles of the pool and the brown concrete pool coping and surrounding area.

The swimming pool is framed by Sandblasted Exposed Aggregate concrete paving used as the pool coping and surrounds to produce an innovative and unique outcome, which is not modular like paving. When using concrete you are not constrained by the limitations of width and length and you can dispense with busy joins and mortar lines.

The frameless glass pool fence provides a pool safety barrier and allows the pool area to retain a sense of space and enhances the shape of the pool design, without compromising the aesthetically pleasing view to the pool from the house, with the golf course in the background.
