Private Garden: Swimming Pool

This well-defined enclosed space was chosen by the owners of the house, as their preferred location for a natural swimming pool. Cathal O’Meara Landscape Architects were commissioned to make this a reality.

The strong defining limestone walls prompted the design of a formal geometric pool. A contrasting layer of planting softens this austere approach and envelopes the pool into the adjacent garden.

This pool is fed from an onsite well and has a number of technical installations to optimise the function of the regeneration zone to deliver clear swimming water.
