St Andrews Street, Brighton.
Franklin Landscape & Design transformed this backyard into a more functional and aesthetically pleasuring outdoor space that could be appreciated by the entire family.
Working with an existing pool and backyard that was starting to age and no longer filled it’s potential, Franklin’s Landscape & Design team were asked to create an outdoor space that was more functional and provided a beautiful view that the owners could enjoy from the floor to ceiling windows interfacing the indoor and outdoor living areas.
The design scope included a renovation of the existing pool, an outdoor entertaining area incorporating an in-built BBQ, bar and outdoor fireplace, and an expanse of lawn area for the kids to enjoy.
The main feature of the backyard is undoubtedly the 8.25m-long pool, with its polished concrete daybed cantilevered over one end of the pool, and with a shallow beach and steps down into the water.
The old pool tiles were replaced with white tiles, giving the water a cool and fresh light blue appearance.
Three grooved water features cascade into the pool and are located opposite the main living of the house – the house and dining room – allowing the relaxing sound and visual appeal of cascading water to be enjoyed indoors and out.
The clients are happy they now have a dynamic outdoor space that they can entertain in, with room for the kids to play – and a pool worthy of the magazines it has been showcased in.
