13.02 Fountains Gallery

Pelican Isle Residence in Fort Lauderdale sports a 200 foot Yacht Dock, but greets it guests from the auto court with this handsome Estate Fountain, designed by Rex Nichols Architecture and Rhett Roy Landscape Architecture. Dale Mallie of Archetype was commissioned to fabricate the fountain, but first detailed all of the components. Canales(Origin of Water) were place on the plinths of columns above the fountain elevation. Columns by others. The Canales were specially designed as Acanthus Leaf and Ball Medallions and set as diamonds on the plinths. Separate manifolds control each level. Coping on each level was designed and incorporated tumbled travertine random dimension mosaics outlining the leading edges of the stones.

Mother of Pearl and washed river rock were used as aggregates in the taupe travertine mix as accents and exposed randomly , one of Dale's signature casting methods. The second level canales were sliced versions of the full canales above with their top surfaces ground to expose the Mother of Pearl and aggregates. They protrude from the beam with a collar to conceal masonry imperfections, a detail preplanned that gives the canale or sluce a visual stability. The curb at the driveway edge protects the beam from damage and gives the design its stability in front of this massive residence.
This curb and coping is available from archetype and has been incorporated in other projects as seen in 13.02c (a complete circular driveway fountain with 28'-8" OD now in a planning stage) and 13.02d (Riverwalk II, a series of fountains in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
