The Anthony & Sylvan pool combines the beautiful indoor areas with the natural flow of the exterior landscape, where the design creates a water space that seems to have no limit, leading to the stunning Las Vegas Strip. “The design and construction of this pool were a real challenge, but looking at the final product we think every detail was worth it,” said Tom Casey, vice president of the company.
Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping.
Meanwhile, the designers at Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping also received an honorable mention for their excellent design and construction proficiency. And although it could be said that the project chosen to participate in the contest is a bit extravagant, the truth is that it is also quite remarkable. See more home and design here.
The shape of the Glass-Tile Violin-Shaped Pool simulates, as the name implies, the silhouette of a violin. A play of design and lighting creates the illusion of strings and other musical elements. Furthermore, this particular project integrates the most advanced technology and allows the user to control the music, aquatic display and even the appearance of the pool, through various lighting elements.
Questar Pools and Spas.
Finally, the list of winners includes the designers from Questar Pools and Spas, which presented a much more minimalist concept, but equally captivating. Honored for its elegant design, the Glass-Tile Perimeter Overflow pool is a unique piece of architecture that stands out for its simplicity. Its design is inspired by a gentle cascade, and is subtly decorated with various geometric platforms. Three sides overflow into infinite axes while the fourth side boasts a fire element that adds elegance and a bit of mystery to the final product. ■
