Variation with the Classics

This unique pool design brings a feeling of freshness by incorporating split stone flooring in three different materials, for a sense of variety. Color and texture are brought into focus by the many formats that are seen in this superior outdoor project. However, a singular storyline has been fashioned by the architect’s flirtation with a few discreet contemporary design elements that help to tie it all together.

Harvest crazy paving brings a sense of play to the general surrounds of the rectangular pool structure, while the Cobb & Co split stone coping and pavers used as wet edge paving keeps the water surface on the same level as the pool concourse, creating a seamless transition to the submerged stone bench seats that extend along both sides of the pool.

These large format pavers occur again as vertical cladding on the oversized plinths at the four corners of the pool, on the classically-styled staircase leading up to the main residence and as a modular arrangement in the fully-equipped pool house.

Facing off against the Mitta Mitta dry stone wall at the opposite end of the pool, the stained teak structure of the pool house echoes the natural color variations of the split stone and emphasizing the earthy tones of the dry stone.
