The clients brief was to produce a pool that would be the main feature of the house — visible from both the internal rooms as well as the outdoor entertaining areas. The result is a contemporary pool with adjacent spa that aligns perfectly with the architectural elements of the existing home. The square 5m x 5m pool has been positioned to precisely line up with a large, square living room window. To further enhance the pool’s link to the symmetrical design of the home, a glass window was built into the pool wall, aligning with both the spa’s spill-over edge and the living room window.
The natural slope of this property has been incorporated into the design, with the pool being elevated 1.2m. At Jakin we believe a pool is not a stand-alone feature in the rear of a yard, but a component of a unified whole, including the home, outdoor entertaining area, pool and garden. We believe all elements should seamlessly blend to create a great design. Every design and material choice of a Jakin project is created to suit any existing structure and, most importantly, the client’s brief and intended use.
