Spectacular Outdoor Transformation

In Blog, Projets Achevés, Résidentiel by Louise van Niekerk

One would think in order to escape the ever present Middle Eastern heat and humidity a swimming pool would be an absolute necessity. However, one VIP client in Jumeirah Islands (Dubai) had a different idea.

In this instance our client approached us with a very specific request to investigate ways in which to transform their swimming pool. Due to its limited size, it had not been utilised to its fullest capacity.

This was the ideal cue for our team of specialist designers and artisans to get their creative juices flowing for an outdoor transformation. After a brainstorming session, they proposed (and ultimately implemented) the following plan of action:

  • Drain the swimming pool and remove any pool related equipment.
  • Alter the current levels within the pool to create a comfortable sunken seating area.
  • Cover the area with an original, custom made Cape Reed thatched roof that will blend in with the natural vegetation and compliment the immediate landscaping environment.
  • This will not only provide the necessary protection from the natural elements but will also create a stunning ambiance and atmosphere of tranquility – especially during the night time when one would like to socialize as a family or entertain friends and acquaintances.
What used to be a pool is now a sunken seating area.

We embarked on this project with much enthusiasm and completed it with no time wasted. In the process we managed to totally overwhelm our client, who is said to enjoy the remarkable outdoor transformation virtually on a daily basis.
