This fully suspended infinity edge pool provides a reflective counterpoint between a modern home and it’s rugged natural setting. The fully elevated pool extends outward from the home and takes full advantage of its natural setting and breathtaking views of the Salish Sea and Vancouver Island.
The client desired a linear extension of the home, jutting out and above its natural setting towards the ocean. The monolithic structure was not set within a structural box, which resulted in the need for extensive structural engineering, waterproofing and preparation for the all-tile finish.
The pool integrates seamlessly with the modern home and complements its natural setting. The dark blue tile finish allows for a reflective surface to amplify what is already a dramatic setting.
