Hi.

Thanks for your kind words

The site is 630m2 and there is approximately 8 meters between the fence line and the house.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the kind words. It's 1200mm shallow end, 1400mm far end & 1800mm for the deepest point. We use these depths across most of our pools as it allows standing at both ends making the pool multipurpose.

Are you in Melbourne? If so call us. It's what we do. You could also call any pool builder? try Aloha Pools, Serenity Pools or Elite Pools.

would you recommend running bamboo? - this exactly the design that I'm looking for. We're in Costa Rica and have a step Hill behind the pool/hedge. We have natural tall bamboo and before I grow it, I'm considering whether it will interfere with the pool wall. Can you share any details/info on the house design too?

We normally use a clumping bamboo rather than the running varieties as they don't cause issues down the track. Running bamboo is only really good used in enclosed planters. Root systems are fine against pool wall when using the clumping varieties. Have a look at the clumping varieties we use at www.redcloudbamboo.com.au If you have a large amount of land you might be fine using the normal running bamboo, we just don't use it here in Australia often as it can be trouble later in life.

Which is the most effective product to protect the wood from the splash water of the pool that contains chlorides...?

We use either an Intergrain or Cutek oil stain but there is no product that will fully protect the timber from the harsh water.

It doesn't look like it in this photo but there is actually about 500mm between the pool and the hedge. There is enough room to walk along with some hedge trimmers.

Its very close to the colour you see. The tiles are plain white which gives the light crisp blue colour. Here's a link to the same pool during the day with no lights on.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Solstice Daydream Break: 10 Breathtaking Swimming Pools
Limited space. The small size of this pool area creates a nice sense of intimacy, which makes this space even more inviting. Consider that you really need only one way into the water. The dense hedge acts as a border and helps to define this as an outdoor room.An outdoor shower backed by a contrasting colored tile wall at the far end is reflected in the detail for the fountain at center right within the pool. The remaining bright white pool tiles let the water take on the soothing aqua color with which swimming pools are associated.
