Infinite possibility

pool

With an infinity pool as its central feature, TerraVerde drew upon a range of landscaping methods to deliver a challenging design and build concept at this luxury villa.

In the heart of Palm Jumeirah, this luxury villa project shows how a beautiful landscape design can both complement the exterior of an existing property and the natural surrounding landscape, but nonetheless stand in isolation as an aesthetically striking outdoor area. The project implemented a range of landscaping methods including irrigation, pool installation, softscaping, hardscaping, construction and bespoke carpentry.

The client had outlined a brief with a challenging design and build concept. They were clear they wanted to adopt a large swimming pool and Jacuzzi but with enough space to include a comfortable ‘break out’ area, all whilst embracing a Moroccan style.

Specification

Prior to the design stages the land on site was extended further, maximising the available space. The pool was installed running parallel along the beach front. An infinity pool was the obvious choice to generate a feeling of tranquility, almost resembling swimming in natural waters. With eye-level views of the sea, integrated sun beds around the pool only added to the serene, laid-back ambience.

Adjacent to the swimming pool, a large Jacuzzi was placed separately and slightly raised. The Jacuzzi itself is unique in shape, outlining a symbolic Arabic pattern. Installing such an unusual formation wasn’t easy, but was necessary to achieve the client’s brief.

Entertainment

Opposite both pools is an entertaining area complete with stainless steel BBQ and complete outdoor kitchen. Natural red meranti wood was used for the decking to attain a rustic natural effect, together with beige travertine around the cooking area. A black granite worktop provides a great contrast in both colour and texture and adds a slightly modern twist to this otherwise organic set. The materials used in this inviting communal space are of the highest quality. The kitchen appliances, sourced from Viking, also reflect this and included a fridge, ice maker and cooler, all of which were covered by a custommade pergola developed by TerraVerde.

Planting

An array of exotic plantation was used in amongst the hardscape. Asparagus ferns planted next to the pool areas give a dappled effect from the sun. Coconut trees are located in various spots to showcase a utopian sensibility, reinforced with foxtails.

Hard landscaping

TerraVerde opted for a more minimalistic flavour when it came to the driveway. Limestone paves the drive, visually dark in colour and extremely durable. The entrance, with its set of majestic beige travertine steps with fixed LED lights, is at the side of the building and leads past a contemporary, crystal black water feature with stainless steel cladding. Another set of these steps connects the garden to the beach, separated by a fitted shower positioned so users can rinse away sand before dipping into the luxurious pool.
