This cocktail pool + spa combo, also appropriately named in the industry as a ‘spool’, was the perfect addition to this three-story townhome. With site constraints and access issues, the project was also the perfect challenge for the Water’s Edge team.
After addressing the limiting easements and setbacks of the space, we designed a 4.5 ft x 4.5 ft square spool, bordered by low maintenance, artificial turf and a travertine patio that seamlessly blended with the interior flooring of the home. The spool features massage jets and an arching rain descent water feature. The landscaping included bamboo along the back fence for privacy and jasmine vine to organically disguise the hog wire fence and enclosed pool pump.
Our favorite technical detail is the skimmer location, perfectly camouflaged by a turf cut-out and positioned to minimize cleaning by working with the natural water flow. Our favorite aesthetic detail is the fresh, urban energy of the entire oasis.
