No. Standard pool. Just the coping is concrete "tabby finish"

Pool Finish and Tile? - What pool finish and tile was used? Also, is there pool tile on top of the wall (under the pavers)?

The pool tile was something we got from our individual pool contractor. 1x1 mosaics. Yes, there is tile on top of the wall in between the steps.

The are no compliments I can add to what's already said. - It's a great space and the entire home is gorgeous. It's truly inspiring for our new home in Florida. Our dilemma with designing a new home with a courtyard is insect control. With so much access to the pool and all the ground cover near the doors, how often can the home be opened up? I know many have opinions regarding swimming at night, but we like it. Plus we'd love to leave our house open during dusk in the fall and spring. So many of these gorgeous homes don't have screens which would certainly degrade the style. As an architect do you provide solutions to the insect dilemma often?

Thank you for your response. I think recessed screens are a good idea for some of the transitional months. We live in Gainesville, FL and our temps are fantastic at the moment, but a mosquito will always find a way in during the evenings if the doors are open. After a hard freeze, they'll disappear until spring. The don't call it the Swamp for nothing, but we're planning to build in St Pete and I hope proximity to the Gulf will improve the insect issue. Thanks again. Nice work.

I went to school in Gainesville. I totally agree. St. Pete will be nice. Retractable screens will impact design but can be a seamless element once figured out. Best of luck. Let me know I can help. My email michelle@balfoort.co

It is poured in place concrete by a local contractor. The sea shells are added at the last minute and then finished smooth. They came back next day and pressure washed surface to expose shell aggregate.

Beautiful pool - This pool looks to be the size that I will be putting in. Love the way the hot tub is within the pool but separate. I am curious as to the pool dimensions as I'm wondering if I could fit this design within the space. Thanks

Yes, photo exaggerates the length. There is also a swim shelf at other end. It's not a huge pool all said and done but scale works for us and within context.

Below the steps there is a diving wall between the spa and pool. Water just barely flows thru. To reduce the time it takes to heat the spa in the winter, we let the water level fall low so that no water "escapes" to the pool.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This pool in Florida is logically placed in the courtyard of a U-shape plan. This makes the pool the focus of the outdoor space, but also an impediment. The stepping stones deal with the latter.
