Freeform Pool with Vanishing-Edge

Built on a heavily sloped lot, this project required a fair amount of site work, and the installation of multiple retaining walls, prior to the installation of the pool and spa. A freeform, vanishing edge pool has been positioned so that owners, a family with young children, can fully enjoy the epic view of the mountains in the distance. The pool’s features include a Pebble Tec interior finish, 7-foot round spa with interchangeable JetPaks, and Paramount 99%-vacuum-free cleaning system. With a Jandy Pro Series iAqualink web-based control system it is also a “smart” pool. The homeowners are able to set water temperatures, turn lights on and off, and activate the pool’s vanishing edge waterfall feature from any web-enabled device, allowing their outdoor oasis to be “jump-in ready” the moment they arrive home. Working with Bahler Brothers, we surrounded the pool with an oversized sundeck, with space for dining and lounging. A series of terraces flow from the rear of the home down to the pool, creating a sense of outdoor rooms — and a much more family-friendly layout — in the hilly backyard.
