During a hot, humid summer, nothing is as refreshing as a swimming pool. Although it might be seen as a luxury, swimming pools serve many functions and are therefore often worth the splurge. Besides being a nice place to cool off, a spa with a colorful backsplash or water feature can add much-needed visual interest to your yard. In your location, it might also be a solid investment. In places with hot summers and mild winters, backyard pools are a buyer requirement, so installing one can help your home sell faster and for a higher market value. More
This pool and spa is built in an affluent neighborhood with many new homes that are traditional in design but have modern, clean details. Similar to the homes, this pool takes a traditional pool and gives it a clean, modern twist. The site proved to be perfect for a long lap pool that the client desired with plenty of room for a separate spa. The two bodies of water, though separate, are visually linked together by a custom limestone raised water feature wall with 10 custom Bobe water scuppers.

The design of this new four bedroom house provides a strong contemporary presence but also maintains a very private face to the street. Composed of simple elements, the ground floor is largely glass overhung by the first floor balconies framed in white, creating deep shadows at both levels. Adjustable white louvred screens to all balconies control sunlight and privacy, while maintaining the connection between inside and out.
