Case Study – Charles Project

Mr and Mrs Charles designed their new house to incorporate an indoor swimming pool. The entire property is styled with practicality and beauty in mind, and the pool room is no exception. The 13.0m swimming pool is perfect for serious swimming for training and fitness, and great for the whole family to enjoy.

EDIT-2We incorporated Roman style side entry steps, a fully automatic slatted cover system and an unusual and stylish IPE hardwood pool surround. The end result is a clean and practical pool with a contemporary feel.

The location for this pool installation was on a very steep hill. The construction period was during the very cold weather and we were severely hampered by snow and ice on the hill. Determined not to be defeated, we constructed a staircase from scaffolding enabling us to safely navigate the incline and continue with the installation despite the weather!

The simple design of this pool combined with the unusual choice of pool surround makes it aesthetically pleasing and extremely effective. The surrounding countryside of Beachy Head and the English Channel, which the pool overlooks makes a breath-taking backdrop. Unpretentious yet contemporary style was key for this design, so not to detract from the stunning view.

“We’ve been very particular when putting together the plans for our new house, and this beautiful pool is the icing on the cake! It fits our vision for a swimming pool brilliantly, and means we can enjoy spending time in the water all year round. All the family have loved swimming in the pool. We’re impressed by the way you managed the construction despite the terrible weather, and made the whole process stress-free for us – thank you.”
