To take on this tricky job, a solution needed to be found to dig the swimming pool with only 1m access onto the site. Fences were unable to be pulled down as this property in Kew already had established neighbouring lots. Despite the circumstances and working by the concept “where there is a will, there is a way”, a 900mm retractable machine and motorized wheelbarrow were used to excavate the swimming pool. Extra manpower was required to manually assist with this dig, ensuring that this job was completed at an efficient pace and was kept to the construction timeframe.
The most obvious design feature of this swimming pool is its circular shape – a rare design that can only be achieved with a concrete structure. Combined with a sparkling light blue glass pebble interior, this design is the perfect counterpart to the existing natural landscape that free flows around the pool. At the furthest end of the pool, a curved external swimout (2m x 500mm) doubles as the pool entry. This was intentionally positioned to directly face the prominent garden vicinity – perfect for the owners to sit back and enjoy the view of their private oasis.
This swimming pool incorporates an automatic heat pump, water and chemical management system and underwater LED multicolour lighting with all the pool filtration equipment cleverly designed to be hidden in a nearby shed. With a 4m diameter and a flat depth of 1.7m, this swimming pool is ideal for the owners to plunge in on a warm and sunny Melbourne day.
