Dive In: Stone for Swimming Pools
This Brabazon limestone swimming pool with outdoor black granite reflection pool and travertine shower is the perfect example of how stone can be used to create a statement pool. Smooth, chalky Brabazon – a strong and durable exterior stone, was used to create a pool with coordinating paving and benches for a seamless effect. The outdoor shower was created from a cut-to-size piece of unfilled bone travertine from Italy and the 800 x 400 x 30mm tiles were sanded to offer extra slip resistance around the shower area.
This extensive project in Spain required 1000m² of PPX limestone for the exterior paving area and interior flooring surfaces. Large cut-to-size tiles were produced within our Hertfordshire masonry workshop to create an expansive terrace where water and limestone was used together to create a striking architectural feature. The end result was an exterior terrace space where both natural stone and water helped to create a truly tranquil poolside.
