as an integral part, with a number of
elements to keep both swimmers and
A timber daybed is the perfect spot
to soak up some rays and relax to the
soothing sound of splashing from the
simple yet effective water feature.

steppers across the water allowed the
fence to be closer to the edge of the

Drawing inspiration from the colour and vibrancy of the Coral Sea,
this pool is an example of the striking effect of the right choice in tiling.

reef – and matched the plaster interior for a completely seamless look.
Water falls from a sheer descent into mini pools, before cascading
into the main pool, with the same effect reflected in the spa area.
The whole design is a water feature in itself, providing the ultimate
space in which to unwind and relax. Exclusive Pools (08) 9344 2366,
