Surrey Hills Pool
It is often the case on sites that have significant changes in height that the pool is required to be built out of the ground, with the swimming pool’s wall creating a new terraced level.
It is often the case on sites that have significant changes in height that the pool is required to be built out of the ground, with the swimming pool’s wall creating a new terraced level. But what then do you do about the new, fairly intrusive wall that comes with your nice new terraced outdoor spaces?
Well, if you want a show stopping solution then an acrylic window is the perfect answer. Including a window into the design of your swimming pool creates a genuine sense of depth and space, completely dissolving the negative impact that can sometimes be caused by dominating retaining walls on the look, feel and function of the spaces that they are adjacent to.
In this example, a restrained approach to the design of the outdoor spaces allowed key features to be given priority (such as the swimming pool, lighting and terracing), and a strong connection between the house and garden was achieved.
