At 850 square feet, this particular pool was a bit larger than average. Not only that, but with all of the various features and finishing materials used, it would end up being a showpiece for future, tentative pool owners to draw inspiration from. It has everything from fire bowls and a sheer descent waterfall affixed to a raised feature wall, to an all tile perimeter overflow spa adjacent to an over-sized wet deck with a glo-brite deck bubblers and room to accommodate 4 chaise style ledge loungers. But the features weren't limited to the swimming pool itself; outside the water you'll find an entirely different catalog of fine materials and crafsmanship. We started by wrapping the pool with 12" lueder limestone coping, and the decking areas consist of large format Hartstone concrete pavers contained by matching lueder limestone borders. Connecting the larger independent decking areas was accomplished by adding colored concrete stepper pads between them. The client also requested fire pit area with generous seating and this request was met by implementing a 5" diameter circular fire pit surrounded by a custom built in 20 linear foot, semi circle, stone bench. The client wanted linear and contemporary, but they wanted to implement that design bench. The client wanted linear and contemporary but they wanted to implement that that design aesthetic in a way that wouldn't clash with the hill country modern veneer of their new home. What they ended up with was a sleek, sexy pool pool interior, wrapped up and surrounded by some very warm, early, southwestern finishes that really compliment the homes exterior aesthetic. The tiles perimeter overflow spa, the oversized wet deck the fire bowls, the lights and the sheer descent waterfall all scream "Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas", while the Lueder limestone, the Hartstone pavers, the chopstone walls and the colored concrete all quietly nod to something just outside of San Antonio.Vote For This Submission
