Santorini Dreams

Mediterranean pool design

This client’s home featured traditional Mediterranean architecture. Since it is our philosophy at Artisan Home Resorts to create a landscape design that is consistent with and complementary to the style and design of the house itself, we recommended a landscape design featuring a Mediterranean-inspired pool.

The backyard had two levels, so we took advantage of that by designing a reverse negative edge pool. This spills into a smaller “play pool” on the lower patio. At the far end of the upper pool, we designed a round, 180 degree perimeter overflow spa.

The upper pool also includes a thermal shelf with steps leading into the deeper section of the pool. These multiple layers are an updated take on Santorini, a classic Mediterranean destination.

The tile on the back of the waterfall was chosen specifically to match the Mediterranean pool design theme and was carried over to the walls of the island fire pit. The random pattern Arizona flagstone on the patio was already in place and loved by our client, so we preserved it and worked it into the new design.

A Bocce Ball court was placed to the side of the upper pool and surrounded with flowering plants. All of the elements of this Mediterranean pool design project weave together to create a beautiful, formal setting blending balance and symmetry with functionality.
