Roman Arches

Spectacular Rain Curtains

This project brings to mind a classical Roman bath but the lighting and rain curtains falling from the arches bring a visually stunning element to the pool and exterior. The interior of this home has a classical design with arches and columns. Our clients wanted us to create this feel outside as well. The theme was carried to the exterior space with the grand Roman arches as the centerpiece of the design and a focal point at dusk when the lights shine into the falling water. Rain curtains are often used for smaller features near the pool or over a spa, but we took this one to a large scale in keeping with the scope of the incredible view. Therefore, we paid special attention to scale, ensuring that the arches were not dwarfed by the expanse of the 10-acre foothill estate.

Fountain Supply Company, of Santa Clarita, CA, designed the pump system, which transformed the arches into a support for the beautiful rain curtains. This focal point was designed to be enjoyed just as much from inside the home as outside. The project includes tiles inset into the plaster of the pool bottom, lighting under the stacked-flagstone stairs and additional lighting under the arches themselves for an incredible nighttime effect. We also incorporated natural granite boulders into the design and landscaping. A curved niche on the side of the pool opposite the stairs offer cement seating for those who would like to congregate or sit while keeping their beverages out of the pool water.
