Pool of the Year: Laguna Pools & Spas, Victoria
The Pool of the Year from Laguna Pools & Spas features technical hydraulics, skilful finishes and absolute customisation with a stunning result. The opportunity to bring this unique and challenging design to life was one of immense satisfaction for the pool builders. The client’s desire for something special was realised through a strong connection between design intent and a commitment to execute the finest in swimming pool construction. With an appetising degree of complexity, the only way to achieve this stunning pool and spa was to have complete understanding of Why? And How? The Why, was to provide this empty rear yard with a functional yet eye-catching masterpiece that showed off the opulence that this home craved. The How was through meticulous and dedicated workmanship from all involved.
“The clients and the designer challenged us to provide something different. So, from the custom blend glass Bisazza tiles, to the curves, colours and varying layers, this pool and spa gave them resort-style relaxation and usability, while providing a luxurious and eye-popping feature that is sure to wow guests.”
