EXTENSIVE SERVICE, OPTIMUM RESULTS

MAKING THE ENTIRE PROCESS EASY

Homeowners are increasingly seeking professional assistance to ensure the creation of their new swimming pool and entertaining area runs smoothly. The professional skills a company such as sydney’s A Total Concept landscape Architects & swimming Pool designers can bring to a project will ensure a stress-free experience.

The team at A Total Concept landscape Architects & swimming Pool designers will manage every aspect of a project – from the design process to dealing with local council requirements – so that the clients’ only responsibility is to relax. such was the case with the featured project.

“The owners engaged us to totally manage this integrated pool, entertaining area and garden [project],” says shaun Wright, senior designer at A Total Concept landscape Architects & swimming Pool designers.

“We undertook the designs, obtained building approval through the local council [and] provided detailed specifications for all aspects of the project, including the pool equipment, the choice of materials and colours, paving selections, landscape lighting and types of plants,” says principal John storch. “We tendered the works to pool and landscape contractors that we recommended, and then undertook the total management of the project for our clients.”

The end result is a stunning family pool, with clean, simple lines and rich, translucent glass tiles that seamlessly integrate with the home and beautifully reflect the pool and house lights at night. Packaged with the beauty of the surrounding district views, gardens and grey natural-stone paving, the final product achieves the total concept that was originally presented to the clients.

The pool features soft colours that don’t detract from the magnificent district views. Timber decking was selected for the entertaining area to provide a visually soft material that floats above the cliff edge and directs views outward.

The main entertaining area on the upper deck caters to the adult occupants and their guests, while the poolside entertaining area is used predominately by the three teenage children and their friends. While the area includes plenty of room for all of the teenage essentials – such as lounges, daybeds and a huge umbrella – it is the ideal spot for anyone to sit, chat and enjoy the sunset.

Plantings in the garden include soft, understated bands of low-growing helichrysum, pig face, dichondra repens, blechnum, senecio, convolvulus and juncus, which highlight the district views.

Project 1

EUROPEAN ELEGANCE

WHERE PRACTICALITY MEETS LUXURY

The owners of this beautiful Sydney property wanted to revive their outdoor area and create a luxury resort feel in the comfort of their own backyard. They employed the help of A Total Concept Landscape Architects & Swimming Pool Designers, who designed and project managed a new lawn, garden, cabana, pool and entertaining deck.

The featured project boasts a stunning contemporary European design with a pool that exhibits a beautiful re ection of the sky. The pool’s shimmering blue water also contrasts elegantly with the blonde travertine poolside paving. This combination results in a smooth transition between the pool and garden, and brings the whole project together.

Within the pool, the large steps and extensive underwater benches also work as informal seating. Combined with heated spa jets into the backrest, this pool is the perfect place to sit back and unwind.

The new open-style cabana with travertine ooring includes numerous design and convenience elements, while still ensuring the style matches the existing home. With facilities including a barbecue, dishwasher, fridge set in bespoke cabinetry, large TV, fans, a home integrated sound system, plus a generous lounge and daybeds, the owners will never have to leave.

The cabana is well lit with energy-ef cient LED lighting installed in the ceiling, allowing for continued use during the evening. LED lighting has also been placed throughout the garden and swimming pool area, to help create a wonderful ambience with washes of light and dancing shadows.

The project has been designed with simple, clean lines to integrate the entire home and outdoor area. The cabana provides added luxury to the property as well as offering a perfect entertainment area for adults, children, friends and family.

THE COMPLETE PACKAGE

A SWIMMING POOL, CABANA AND TENNIS COURT!

John Storch, principal of A Total Concept Landscape Architects & Swimming Pool Designers was commissioned to design the extensive external entertaining areas of this Brisbane acreage property, which includes a swimming pool, cabana and tennis court.

The tennis court runs east-west and utilises the property’s level areas. The positioning of the tennis court also determined where the pool and cabana would be situated, as they needed to be built in between the house and the tennis court. The pool’s positioning also takes advantage of the varying ground levels of the outdoor area, which allowed the company to maximise the property’s available space.

The simple clean lines of the swimming pool are reflected in the shape of the cabana and surrounding paved areas, which contribute to the outdoor area’s contemporary design. The pool has been designed with two shallow ends and a deep middle, to ensure young children are able to play games and utilise the entire pool.

Swim jets have also been installed to one end of the pool, so the mum and dad can work out, while the conversation pit on the other side ensures the pool is perfect for entertaining.

Understated glass tiles have been used to make the water a sparkling blue colour, and the pool’s geometric shape contrasts beautifully with the cross-cut, half-filled travertine paving that has been used across the space’s entertaining area and cabana floor. This paving blends seamlessly with the dappled, shaded greens of the surrounding garden and lawn. The spacious entertainment area comes complete with a wood-fired pizza oven and barbecue, and the cabana is set amongst sprawling lawns that are dotted with towering gum trees.

The poolside cabana’s aesthetic ensures the overall project complements the style of the home. The roof of the poolside cabana has been designed with a hip that visually links to the home’s roof, and allows for high ceilings and skylights that increase air flow and make the cabana seem more spacious. The home’s brickwork has been matched and used extensively in both the cabana and barbecue to further forge a link between the two areas.

A large wall-mounted LCD TV, intricate built-in cabinetry incorporating glass splashbacks, a Caesarstone benchtop, undermount sink, stainless steel fridge, dishwasher and a bar, plus fully-furnished bathroom facilities with a shower, toilet and basin. Beneath the cabana is a fully-equipped gym with running and rowing machines, free weights and benches, and a bathroom.
