Winnetka, IL Inground Custom Swimming Pool

Written by

Just because one’s backyard doesn’t have multiple acres of free available space doesn’t necessarily mean that one can’t have a fabulous luxury swimming pool. This pool in Winnetka, IL illustrates what sound design principles can produce when a designer is presented with a limited space. This 10’0” x 20’0” sport pool has an automatic safety cover with custom walk-on stone lid system. A full-end bench provides ample seating for bathers and loungers at one end of the pool, and a Badujet swim resistance system at the opposite end provides ample opportunity for swimming exercise. LED lights give the pool a subtle luminescence in the evening, and an in-floor cleaning system makes keeping the pool clean and tidy virtually effortless. Indiana Limestone coping surrounds the perimeter, and is met by turf on two sides and Turkish travertine on the other two sides.

Northbrook, IL Custom Inground Swimming Pool

This project, which was featured on the television show “Epic Pools” on Destination America, has myriad features for the entire family. Conflating the husband’s desire for a lagoon style pool environment and the wife’s proclivity for the traditional look, this project brings together a freeform pool, raised oval spa, and rustic grotto with dual-flumed stained concrete water slides. A Solid Limestone bridge connects the two disparate worlds, and also delineates the recreation areas of the pool. Custom color-blended glass tile is prominent around the perimeter and on both the positive and negative sides of the hot tub. Over 1,100 square feet of Vintage Ivory colored Travertine adorns the expansive decking and patio areas. Fon du Lac outcropping retaining walls and Granite boulders form the cave and grotto feature. Fire bowls are prominently featured in the landscape, and fire features emanate from the boulders in the grotto.

This indoor lap swimming pool measures 8'0' x 75'0", and is outfitted with an automatic swimming pool safety cover. What really makes this pool unque is the perimeter recircuation system. The gutter, which is a commercial competition gutter simliar to olympic and collegiate-level swim meet pools, has three chambers that are gravity fed with pool surge. The lowest chamber has a pump that automatically returns the swimmer surge to the pool, which has the effect of maintaining quiescence for lap swimming. This will prevent splash back from the sides, as well as maintaining the fastest surface available. This space also features a 7'0" x 8'0" hot tub at deck level, to warm up the swimmers and to help them get their muscles loose after a strenuous workout. The pool and spa coping are Valder's Wisconsin Limestone. The pool pumps are both variable-speed, and the pool is heated partially by utilizing a geothermal system. At the far end of this lap swimmer's dream is a Quickset (Removable) starting platform. Indoor space designed by Benvenuti and Stein. Photos by Geno Benvenuti.
