PADDINGTON PLUNGE POOL - The renovation of this grand Paddington terrace for a large family meant that every space was carefully considered. With a challenging brief to accommodate off street parking for an SUV, play space for children, adults entertaining, bin storage and plunge pool.

Large sliding doors at the rear of the terrace allows for an easy transition to the generous deck and entertaining space. To one side is a floating style built in BBQ with its light stone bench top contrasting beautifully against the charcoal boundary wall. The custom plunge pool was located off one side of the deck allowing for ample space for a vehicle.

The surface of the pool was fully tiled for a premium finish and safety compliance was addressed with a lockable sliding timber platform that slides away under the deck. Filtration and heating were located remotely in a cupboard adjacent to the rear roller door ensuring all spaces are optimised. At the rear of the pool a cluster of large contemporary cylinder pots with contrasting plantings provides extra greenery and hides a bin storage area.



Situated in Dover Heights and with a easterly ocean aspect this pool and garden called for robust solutions to ensure longevity of the space. Lowering the tiling level in the alfresco area opened up the space and aligned the levels with the pool area creating a greater sense of space.

The colour palette was purposely limited to match the house with whites, light greys, green plantings and blue highlights in the furnishings.

The shape of the existing pool was changed to a rectangular shape providing a more proportionate solution with respect to the overall landscape. It also allowed more practical space around the pool for relaxing and a generous lawn areas adjacent.

The existing pool surface was stripped back and refinished with a deep grey/black pebble surface to complement the pacific ocean views. Introduction of a new water line tiling provided the practical low maintenance waterline solution and non-slip coping tiles finished the surfaces. Glass fencing around the pool and rear boundary ensures each space visually blends into the next and optimises the views. The pool lighting, filtration and control unit systems were all upgraded and controlled with WIFI remote combining to bring the existing pool up to date.
