Sunset Reflecting Pool

Hillside Pool in Saratoga

This hillside Saratoga home has one of the most spectacular views we’ve seen in the Bay Area. We took full advantage of it when designing this infinity edge pool on a hillside for our clients.

From the deep end, swimmers take in the view while standing on a submerged shelf that runs along the wall at the negative edge.

We embraced the existing sweeping curves and large canopied trees of the backyard and continued the natural theme into the hillside swimming pool and spa design.

We drafted a freeform swimming pool with rock boulders adorning either side of the infinity edge to help create the illusion of the water going off towards the horizon.

The beach entry gradually transitions from random natural flagstone tiles to the Wet Edge Signature Matrix plaster and includes a table rock to serve as a place to sit with your feet in the water or a table for a drink while relaxing.

The elevated, walk-in spa mimics the pool's infinity edge as it spills into the pool over glass tile crafted in the USA by Lightstreams. A relaxing atmosphere is created by the water gently flowing over the two natural rock waterfalls on this custom swimming pool installation.

An artificial Japanese Maple tree was placed in a raised tree planter with dozens of LED lights nestled in the leaves. They light up when the sun goes down to create a focal point for the view from the house.

We have incredible engineers who designed the swimming pool to connect via a cold joint to the existing patio. This creates a seamless transition from the house into the pool using the steps we placed at the patio’s edge.

Our clients love the backyard design we created for them and have proudly shared pictures of magnificent sunsets reflecting off the tranquil waters of their hillside pool in Saratoga.
