409 Scandinavian Swimming Pool Design Ideas
Moving Aquatic Floors & Walkable Pool Covers
A swimming pool water is hidden beneath the brushed stainless steel planter bed. A shallow koi pond and reflecting pool mirrors the size of the deeper swimming pool. The planter bed is even equipped with an irrigation system that automatically disconnects when the cover retracts. Who says that safety and functionality cannot be beautiful?
The original idea was to build a contemporary cedar-clad garden room which could be used as a work-from-home space and gym. With a Primrose project its OK to change the plan half way through and theses photos illustrate this perfectly! Although not typical, scope-creep can happen when clients see the room taking shape and decide to add the odd enhancement, such as decking or a patio. This project in Rickmansworth, completed in August 2020, started out as a 7m x 4m room but the clients needed somewhere to store their garden furniture in the winter and an ordinary shed would have detracted from the beauty of the garden room. Primrose therefore constructed, not a shed, but an adjacent store room which mirrors the aesthetic of the garden room and, in addition to housing garden furniture, also contains a sauna! The decking around the swim spa was then added to bring all the elements together. The cedar cladding and decking is the highest grade Canadian Western Red Cedar available but our team still reject boards that don’t meet the specific requirements of our rooms. The rich orange-brown tones are accentuated by UV oil treatment which keeps the Cedar looking pristine through the years.
