With the intention being a combination of both exercise and family fun, this impressive 15m x 5m swimming pool completely fit the brief. A pool of this size has plenty of freedom in design, which allowed the owners to include exciting elements such as the external fully tiled spa and raised sheerface water feature. It only made sense that a pool this big would have a depth of almost two meters at its deepest point – a prime requirement made by the kids. To assist with these young swimmers, a shallow ledge runs along the full length of the pool, being both a safety feature and playful component in this design.
Due to the slight slope of land, the pool was built to be partially out of ground at the rear point. This raised the opportunity to create a multilevel backyard, which adds a little bit of texture to the wide-open space. And perhaps the most extraordinary aspect is that from the pool you can see panoramic views of the farmland, a truly breathtaking feature that is hard to beat.
The long stretch of bright blue water, teamed with travertine paving, timber decking and a rural farm-like pool barrier, offers a unique country touch to this overall design. This incredible project also features a water and chemical management system, LED multicolour lighting, smooth rendered interior, waterline tiles, solar and gas heating. Our Romsey project was, and still is, a true masterpiece.
