Living Pool

18 m x 2.5 m Lap Pool, Upper Moutere

Our brief for this large, beautiful, rural property tucked away in Upper Moutere, was to build an 18 x 25 metre lap pool.  The pool looks so minimalist and elegant set into the manicured lawn, and it complements the house perfectly.  As you can see in the photographs, the owner has cleverly constructed enormous outdoor speakers.  On our arrival to photograph the pool some time after completion, we were met with rich, classical music filling the garden with a magical and quite haunting effect.

This Living Pool has an open filtration area with an integrated water flow form and is fully planted with aquatic plants.  A manually operated pool cover is retrieved into a small cover pit at one end of the pool.
