We created our biggest infinity pool to date. This was a huge pool with huge challenges! We used a combination of sheet piles and helical piles to hold back the pool and not undermine the footers of the house. There was a real fear that this massive home might slide down the hill and into the river!
The design was challenging as the homeowners wanted both a vanishing edge and a waterfall feature. We designed the entire pool to look like it was built on a natural waterfall wall to accomplish this. We designed the natural rock to start just below the vanishing edge.
We also designed a lower pool to help blend the three styles of the traditional colonial house, a clean line minimalist pool, and the huge waterfall. We also utilized the lower pool to keep the water slide hidden from the main pool. The slide from the upper pool starts from the 2nd story deck on the house, winds behind the cabana, and ends down in the lower pool, a negative six-foot elevation below the main pool.
