Love how simple it is - would probably make the area bigger though - hanna_burbery
Our clients wanted a complete outdoor entertainment area with a resort feel to escape their busy lifestyle.
The design was to include a 10m x 4m swimming pool with central raised 2.4m diameter spa. The circular spa has a full perimeter overflow which is also curved on top to create a subtle look. This required expertise in tiling as the mosaics had to curve of both planes, meaning they had to be laid individually rather than by the sheet. .
Across from the spa a bluestone clad wall supports a large outdoor entertainment screen whilst also providing good cover for the filtration equipment. Adjacent to the pool is a cabana including sauna and shower facilities that completes the resort quality amenities.
Generous entry and relaxation areas are evident in the pool with 3 x long entry steps on one side of the spa with a large swim out ledge on the other. The spa includes both single, double and quadruple jets to assist with massage and a large single jet is included in the pool for those requiring a bit extra.

19. Location: Melbourne, VictoriaWhy we love it: While the lap pool in this Melbourne home is undeniably stunning, it’s the way the curved, frameless glass fence by Frameless Impressions perfectly follows the lines of the decking that has us swooning. - bill3724
glass fence far enough away to avoid splashes as the salt pool will leave water marks - bruce_trevarthen
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.
Following a minimalist aesthetic, the building is almost totally white internally and externally, with small splashes of colour provided by furnishings and the vivid aqua pool that is visible from most rooms.
Parallel with the central hallway is the stair, seemingly cut from a block of white terrazzo. It glows with light from above, illuminating the sheets of glass suspended from the ceiling forming the balustrade.
The view from the central kitchen and family living areas is dominated by the pool. The long north facing terrace and garden become part of the house, multiplying the light within these rooms. The first floor contains bedrooms and a living area, all with direct access to balconies to the front or side overlooking the pool, which also provide shade for the ground floor windows.
Would something like this work? Without grass verge? - catherinejane11
This 6,500-square-foot one-story vacation home overlooks a golf course with the San Jacinto mountain range beyond. The house has a light-colored material palette—limestone floors, bleached teak ceilings—and ample access to outdoor living areas.
