In Brisbane in Summer Months one would regard a swimming pool a necessity, rather than a luxury. On inner city blocks of land, one has to imagine sometimes how a pool can fit the building site, but one should also not be limited by something that may appear difficult. The above image was one such example of a difficult block of land, but with extensive renovations to the original house, it allowed easier access to the rear of the home for the pool to be constructed. The result is a pool that fits perfectly into the confined area, without overwhelming the house. The bifold doors of the downstairs Sitting Room, retract to allow a large open expanse overlooking the pool area, and Balinese inspired gardens. Allowing the interiors to be an extension to the outside area , which also creates the feeling of more space, internally and externally. A very successful integration, of using land, architecture and interiors to create the perfect inner city home.
