This unique site offered an elevation change unusual for Florida Projects and an amazing view of Barfield Bay. The waterfall becomes a feature for the backyard area outside the pool. The oversized spa has a stand-up spa feature and over the shoulder jets inspired by a spa in Ireland. The design features a false decking inlay, with Zuri Premium Decking composite-polyblend-wood. This product looks and feels just like wood, but is resistant to scratching, is colorfast for 25 years and needs almost no maintenance. The inlay design allows for drainage and is hollow underneath which affords the bounce and softness of a traditional wooden deck. The inlays of the decking are bordered with natural stone tile. On the sheer drop waterfall, waterline tile and sun shelf, custom blended tile colors were selected from Oceanside glass a California based tile company that manufactures artistic glass tile using predominantly sand and recycled glass, providing building materials which are both chemical and stain resistant and environmentally friendly. The combination of materials provides interesting contrast within the design and requires little effort to maintain. The shape of the pool makes a gesture toward the bay, and the overflow pool allows you to stand at the edge of the pool and have a relationship with the water beyond. Vibrant lighting and firepit features round out the design to make nighttime use of the pool and spa both romantic and stunning.
