Northbridge ~ Contemporary Pool + Spa ~jknadmin
Symmetry has long been associated with perfection in nature, art and architecture, so much so that the perceived beauty of a human face is directly correlated with the symmetry of its features. Using a unique symmetrical design, Jakin Pools & Landscaping has triumphed in creating a pool to complement this ultra-modern home.
“The client brief was to produce a pool that would be the main feature of the house — visible from both the internal rooms as well as the outdoor entertaining areas,” says James Watkin of Jakin Pools & Landscaping.
The result is a contemporary pool with adjacent spa that aligns perfectly with the architectural elements of the existing home. The square 5m x 5m pool has been positioned to precisely line up with a large, square living room window. To further enhance the pool’s link to the symmetrical design of the home, a plexiglass window was built into the pool wall, aligning with both the spa’s spill-over edge and the living room window.
A sloping block can often cause headaches for pool builders, however the natural slope of this property has been incorporated into the design, with the pool being elevated 1.2m.Jakin Pools and Landscaping believes a pool is not a stand-alone feature in the rear of a yard, but a component of a unified whole, including the house, outdoor entertaining area, pool and garden. The company believes all elements should seamlessly blend together to create a great design. Every design and material choice of a Jakin project is created to suit any existing structure and, most importantly, the client’s brief and intended use.
