A carefully considered design approach enabled maximum value and functionality to be achieved from this compact courtyard space.
Working with a small land parcel of just 10m x 9.5m, the design team at Elite Pools was asked to include a pool as well as an outdoor entertaining area. The selection of light-coloured materials for the bounding walls and flooring system effectively conjured the impression of a more open space, with sufficient colour contrast provided via lush plantings around the perimeter, dark framing elements and hanging wall art.
Different paving styles were used to distinguish the separate spaces for pool and entertainment. Large square edge coping pieces in Anston’s Granite Range Vega were installed around the pool, while the flooring of the outdoor entertaining area was subtly highlighted via the use of slender herringbone concrete pavers.
“This is a classic design executed with the highest attention to detail. The pool/landscape was designed to fit the paving, which meant careful planning from the initial concept plan to the site peg out was crucial.”
