This Project was carried out in conjunction with home renovations by West Valentine Building Designers, with Pool & Landscape by Great Ocean Pools & Winstanley Landscapes. An existing deck was in poor conditrion, & the steeply sloping back garden & lawn were disconneted from the home & deck living areas. The solution was to increase the size of the upper deck to allow a usable expanse of entertaining area that was now accessible thru the generous new openings provided by the stacker sliding door to rear of home. This upper deck is in turn linked by full length return steps from the upper deck to the lower pool deck, achieved by raising the level of the new pool some 1500 mm above the natural ground levels. This lower deck is linked to the new garden & lawns by an impressive staircase from pool patio to ground level. Full alfresco facilities were allowed for, along with a combination of planted & built sreening to provide privacy to, & from, the adjacent home. Working closely with the Registered Building Surveyors, careful consideration ws given to achieve Pool Fence Compliance in the most unobtrusive & cost effective manner. An unusable series of spaces were linked & configured to provide a usable, flowing interaction of home interior, meals & food, pool & garden areas.
