How innovative pool designs and water in transit create stunning effects
from Luxury Pools
The reflective properties of water can provide a dramatic canvas for the advanced swimming pool designer. These masters understand this principle, and use it to their advantage when designing a backyard oasis. In this article from Luxury Pools, some of the finest swimming pool masters show their ability to create illusions, and consequently some of the uniquest and fabulous swimming pool designs in the world.
Infinity-edge pools are meant to be photographed. They are the ultimate in luxury, taking the concept of a private residential swimming pool to an entirely different level. Done right -- and they almost always are -- infinity pools give the illusion of a sheet of water dropping off over the edge of the property, like a waterfall, although you can't see or hear falling water.
That's because the water doesn't fall. The water that spills over the edge, usually into a catch pool or basin a few feet-or-so below the vanishing edge, is recycled back into the swimming pool. To work properly, an infinity-edge pool requires carefully calculated and maintained water levels, strong, solid construction to support thousands of gallons of water and a level edge over which the water can flow.
