pool and alfresco, maida vale

This pool features an infinity edge, allowing water to cascade over curved stone steps reminiscent of rice fields in Bali, where the water falls into the catchment below. Travertine pool capping and paving from Turkey surrounds the pool. Along the walkway of the pool is batu timber decking.

A fully tiled column constructed inside the pool allows the gazebo to securely overhang the pool. You can swim under the gazebo to a seating area. Large granite steps lead out of the pool guarded by two Chinese Fu dogs made especially in Bali and imported to site. These steps lead into the main alfresco and outdoor kitchen. Separating the gazebo and alfresco is a water feature which cascades into its own pond and flows back into the main pool. Inside this pond are eight granite stepping stones which connect the two deck areas.
