Case Study – Goudhurst Project

Outdoor Oval Shaped Swimming Pool

The client had seen an image in a magazine that he cut out and presented to us. The specification was, “I want that, please”! We replicated the design in every way possible. Richard’s installation has a large expanse of paving leading from the house to the pool. It is positioned overlooking stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and large stone steps set behind the pool lead down to the lower garden.

The pool itself is an elliptical shape with a high-tech slatted solar cover system, large entry and exit steps within the pool and eight colour-change led lights. The pool has a constant depth to allow for playing Frisbee and other pool games, along with an underfloor filtration system and heat pump, and unique underground changing rooms.

This was a complex build due to the fact we initially needed to construct a rectangular concrete box in the ground; the entire pool and its surround is actually above ground level. All of the paving is on block and beam, which creates huge room space below. This enabled us to house the pump and filtration system below ground, as well as accommodating a changing area. As a result the visible pool and surrounding area is clean and uncluttered.

During construction the weather was very wet, which threatened our progress.

“Amazing! I never dreamed I would actually own all that inspired me from that first photo in a magazine. XL have worked wonders to create a swimming pool that does everything I wanted it to and more. I love looking out at my beautiful pool, and now my home is complete – it complements the view brilliantly. My family and I have been spending time swimming and enjoying the pool all summer, and I can’t wait to use it again next year.”
