Modern Pool with Stone Retaining Wall & Vanishing Edge

This pool features a classic, geometric shape, and it’s also tastefully trimmed with tile, which is attractive and easy to clean.

What modernizes this classic pool design is its vanishing edge, which transforms the flow of the pool and makes it appear larger than it really is. This pool design is next to a waterway that, when you’re standing between the house and the pool, makes it appear that the pool water extends into the mouth of the bay.

The vanishing edge is made possible by a stone retaining wall, which offers strength and durability. As the water flows over the edge of the pool, it feels almost infinite.

Modern Pool & Raised Spa with Pool Lighting & Fountain

This pool has been divided into two separate spaces through the ingenious use of a terraced wall, which features water curtains and three illuminated fountain jets.

These water curtains and fountain jets are accompanied by a spillway which cascades down from the raised spa. All of these water sources flow into a shallower freeform beach-entry pool, which is better suited for children. Meanwhile, the freeform pool at the top is great for swimming laps or hosting a party.

Northern Virginia Pool with Outdoor Fireplace & Fire Pits

This freeform pool curves to accommodate the aggregate pool deck and surrounding topography, which offers three dedicated spaces for relaxing poolside. In addition to a bench and a table with an umbrella, there’s a lounge area next to the outdoor fireplace for cooler nights next to the pool.

The raised spa features a spillway and sits along a stone wall. At either end of this wall, a spectacular fire pit rests. Across from this wall, a bed of colorful flowers bloom. This modern pool makes great use of its space and features, and the design is surrounded with all four of the natural elements.
