Following a recent modern extension to their country home, the clients’ brief was to convert their traditionally planted garden into a contemporary outdoor living area, with the addition of an outdoor swimming pool as a focal point. The entire design was to be structured, elegant and more importantly, the outside space should be synergetic, and in harmony, with the house interior.
Creating a dreamy colour of the pool water was crucial to the clients’ artistic eye, therefore, choice of materials was vital to meet these requirements. The grey porcelain lining of the swimming pool, the fossil pearl limestone, coping detail and key lighting, all combine to create an elegant and luminous vision by day and by night. Strong topiary shapes, both in the courtyard and pool surrounds, extenuate the chic contemporary sensation of the geometric design.
