Lifestyle backyard blends modern elements and natural features
Project by Solda Pools Ltd.
Located in a 58- x 9-m (190- x 30-ft) deep, narrow lot of midtown Toronto, this spectacular pool and backyard was installed to complement the client’s newly renovated house and garage. The rectilinear pool boasts clean, modern lines esthetically combined with natural features, including a circular spa and rockery waterfall, which harmoniously blend the two styles together.
The project was designed with entertainment and socialization in mind, offering a comfortable space for the homeowner to unwind and enjoy the outdoors with friends and family.
The 4.5- x 9.1-m (15- x 30-ft) gunite concrete pool is decorated with 152.4- x 305-mm (6- x 12-in.) slate waterline tiles and has a 2.4 m (8 ft) depth. The elevated 2.1-m (7-ft) wide circular spa attached to the pool features a custom spill-over negative edge with iridescent glass tiles. The curvilinear pool steps made of concrete are an artistic yet natural extension of the adjacent spa.
At night, the automated light-emitting diode (LED) lights further enhance the ‘super blue’ colour of the pool’s Quartscape interior plaster and lend a warm and inviting look to the water.
The Eramosa flagstone coping surrounding the pool pairs elegantly with the natural setting and adds a Canadian element to the design, while custom glass tiles on the spill-over of the spa lend a more modern approach to the materials. The spacious deck offers an outdoor seating area for sunbathing and poolside lounging.
The sound of water cascading down the custom natural stone rockery along with the many local species of plants that adorn the exterior property lines make this backyard a haven of peace and tranquility.
Strategically installed outdoor lighting throughout the backyard and in various garden pockets accentuate feature areas of this entertainer’s den at night. Further, automated pool controls ensure the lighting, spa pumps, and heating can be set at the click of a phone button to match the homeowner’s mood.
