House in a Beach Garden

By placing the 20 meter long swimming pool in the direction of the sea and just above the boundary wall, it enjoys a seamless visual transition to the ocean. The dark pool allows for a clear reflection the palms and other trees that tower over it. Landscaping on either side soften the edges of the shahabad stone that wraps around the pool. Despite the earth fill surrounding the trees, our team was able to retain them. Since conical brick wells surround the base of the trees and keep the earth away, they can continue to breathe. Simple tree gratings made of leftover rebars, prevent those wells from becoming dangerous pits.
