Carter Jonas were acquired to help with the design and construction of a contemporary 15m x 6m private swimming pool with sliding retractable roof and pool house. It included a plant room, male and female changing rooms with sauna between, fully fitted out gym and family seating /dining area, complete with a fitted kitchen and recessed bio-ethanol fireplace.

The 5-section aluminum retractable roof was the largest ever made by the company and was specially engineered in Italy. The door joinery was in oiled Iroko with ‘316 grade’ stainless steel port hole vision panels and handles, the external walls were finished in a self-coloured ‘monocouche’ render system. The pool hall was fully heated and air conditioned, with a lock out mechanism to shut the system down when the roof was open.
