A swimming pool among olive trees

italian, pool, technology, sea, olive, tree,

This pool is inserted in a private property with a wonderful Art Nouveau-style house, a sober and elegant building of the 30s. The house and the park are located in a sloping land that offers a beautiful view on the sea, and this is how the project of the pool takes shape.

The space is a rather small green area with irregular shape, where two natural elements immediately emerged which would influence the project: two big olive trees and a steep slope.

Such landscape has totally directed the project and the customer's expectations have been met thanks to the perception given by the surrounding context. The pool plan comes out of the particular natural environment.

Except from the two overflow edges, the whole pool follows the curve of the land in order to surround - and respect - the two olive trees. The slope too was supposed to create a visual effect between the water of the pool and the water of the sea.
