Our latest Phase3 residential project was recently featured in The West's 'New Homes' lift-out. Thanks to reporter Maureen Eppen for her words below.
'Working in an area of less than 40sqm, Phase3 Landscape Construction used a mix of recycled and new materials to create a striking plunge pool and outdoor living space in North Fremantle. Senior Designer Matt Gee said the brief was to improve functionality for the poorly configured backyard by introducing a plunge pool, pergola and outdoor seating area, combining elegant design and high-spec elements and rustic finishes.
The focal point is the 2m x 2.2m, 1.2m-deep plunge pool and spa, which is tiled in travertine and incorporates a clear front panel of 70mm perspex. An off-form floating staircase provides access to the pool, framed by custom steel and timber screens.
"Space for the pool was always going to be inherently tight, and a pool window was a key feature to visually enhance the pool and volume of water", Mr Gee said.
Their client said it had been important that the landscaping work and pool complemented the mix of materials used for their original 1890's home, a two storey extension and a retained limestone barn structure.'
