President and CEO of APSP, Rich Gottwald, agreed. “We are excited to partner with SPASA on a number of initiatives. With shared common goals to professionalize and protect the pool and hot tub industry, we are embarking on a new path toward collaboration that can strengthen both memberships and provide consistency for companies doing business in Australia, the U.S. and the world.”

Clever, modern and highly desirable

This innovative, expertly engineered north-facing rooftop pool ticks all the boxes for a family lap pool, while also creating a stunning water feature viewed from the interior and exterior of the home. The brief was to create a contemporary pool for family fun and fitness. However, the location on a narrow inner-city block required clever design and positioning to allow exceptional use of the space that is both practical and beautifully executed. The pool windows provide a visual link between interior and exterior living. The pool itself creates a stunning water feature from many aspects of the home, including the outdoor courtyard on the ground floor, the upstairs family room and from the entrance.

Degree of difficulty and innovation

Complex engineering was required to suspend the pool within the ceiling of the home. The unique design element is that the pool forms part of the ceiling of the living area and kitchen. Three windows in the bottom of the pool are visible from the living area and kitchen, with one of the panels facing the front entrance. The cleverly positioned windows provide light into the contemporary living space and a view of the family as they swim laps. Fingertip control of the pool is provided from the living area, or using a mobile device the heat can be turned on from the office or even the golf course. The Pentair energy efficient variable speed pump provides significant power savings compared to traditional pumps, and premium Sunbather solar heating takes advantage of the north-facing aspect of the house and pool.
