Curnin Atlanta 2013
This photo shows the front of the grotto and waterfall built into the pool. The grotto goes all the way through to a back stair entry and the rock work goes to the floor of the pool. It is created using structural concrete, real boulders, and faux rock carvings. One of a kind grotto in Atlanta.
This photo shows a view looking into the mouth of the grotto. The waterfall above the grotto is not on and shows additional details. The "lighthouse" holds a fern in the foreground.
This photo shows some of the details on the inside of a grotto. The carvings feature a fossil of a T-Rex and other smaller fossils. It also has prehistoric tribal paintings and carvings. A lot of detail and hard work went into making this grotto something other than a stack of boulders.
Details of the rock install between the pool and sunshelf. It's very difficult to see the difference between the real and faux rock carvings.
This photo shows a raised tanning shelf that waterfalls down into the pool beside the sculpted grotto. The interior finish is a custom color created by us in coordination with PebbleTec and Olympic plastering.
Overall view of the pool looking up from the lower terrace and fire pit. The pool wall acts as a bench around the firepit. The grotto and raised sunshelf fits seamlessly into the landscape. This pool pushes the limits of the built environment interacting with the natural environment. Contemporary vs. Natural
This fire pit (and pool) features contemporary glass mixed with rustic stone. Two wonderful materials not commonly featured together.
This photo shows the bench inside the pool next to the bench around the fire pit. This is a wonderful area that allows two different groups to interact together. The interior finish is a specialty Beadcrete finish from PebbleTec. The only like it in the state of Georgia. The glass tile is imported from Italy.
