An exceptional space designed and built by Design Ecology in Austin, Texas. We had the opportunity to tour this space thanks to the hospitality of Design Ecology and their clients back in May as part of our summer tour. The design and material selections are impeccable, including the bold British racing green tile. A bold choice that works perfectly in this space. Photography by Jimi Smith Photography

From the archives, a stunning Design Ecology luxury pool build featuring a next-level implementation of Aquamatic Pool Covers HydraLux system. This European slat-style cover incorporates proven Aquamatic hydraulic technology.

With HydraLux you are no longer limited in your pool design as the HydraLux can be cut to any converging shape. Water features such as laminares and spa overflows can run while the cover is closed.

The HydraLux is a unique automatic pool cover that utilizes extruded rigid PVC slats. This slat design eliminates the rope/track/leading edge bar interface as with traditional automatic pool covers and can provide automation on pools that previously could not accept an automatic pool cover. In addition, multiple covers can be deployed from a hidden recess in the pool floor to allow for the most complex pool shapes and designs.

Even the best plans sometimes don’t work out. We spent 13 hours shooting concrete yesterday and still came up three trucks short. However, the American Ahotcrete Association allows for a cold joint free vessel as long as the surface is prepped properly. We were back on site early this morning to properly prepare the surface we left yesterday for new concrete, and we will have a worry free water tight vessel for years to come.

I am always flattered when clients send me photos of their pool. It lets me know how proud they are of the product we provide. I got this one today from a pool we finished last summer, I must say it’s spectacular.

Flood testing the waterproof membrane ( #dampproofing ) for this rooftop pool. This is an important step to ensure a water tight vessel prior to installation of finishes. Any leaks can be easily repaired at this stage, rather than finding out there is a problem once it’s complete.

Polishing the granite Lautner edge using the pools overflow pump allows us to dial in our tolerance is two levels unachievable with even the most accurate laser. We are able to see high spots and polish them down to achieve even flow, then we reduce the pump speed and do it all over again. This also allows us to do a flood test before plaster to ensure the vessel is watertight.

Big pipe and sweeps fittings equal quiet efficient pumps.

Building pools is fun, but it’s not every day that you have a client as you to mount a @richardorlinski “Born Wild” original sculpture! We designed and built this landscape a few years ago, it’s almost like this natural outcrop was meant for this piece!
